In lieu of Meek Mill's recent sentencing of two to four years behind bars for violating the terms of his probation, friends, family and supporters are gathering today in downtown Philadelphia to hold a rally in support of their hometown rapper in hopes of getting him a lighter sentence.
The violations which brought Judge Genece E. Brinkley to her decision were an atercation at a St. Louis airport in March and the second in August when Meek was arrested in NY for reckless endangerment for popping wheelies on his dirt bike and not wearing a helmet.
'The feds have an interest in the judge and her potential relationships.
Tacopina says the judge requested that Meek Mill remake the Boyz II Men song "On Bended Knee" and shout her out on the track. This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand.
Lawyers for jailed rapper Meek Mill asked the judge who sent him there to take herself off the case Tuesday, court records show.
"Yes, there needs to be action surrounding sentencing reform, but there needs to also be action taken around abolishing the racialized norms of injustice that can lead to Meek Mill serving 2-4 years in prison for non-violent parole violations, and Brock Turner only serving 3 months in prison for three felony counts of sexual assault".
At the November 6 hearing during which Brinkley sentenced Mill, the veteran judge recounted nearly 10 years of court proceedings in which he had violated his probation, and she had sentenced him to short periods in jail and then had extended his probation. This year, he allegedly was involved in a fight at a St. Louis airport and was arrested for reckless driving in NY this August.
Judge Genece E. Brinkley, Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. 'I want you to know that I am personally invested in him so that he can help others'. However, Mack denies these claims.
Brinkley also apparently turned up to Meek's community service, which is unheard of. He also claims the judge acted "inappropriately" by repeatedly asking Mill to drop Roc Nation and sign with Philly music figure Charlie Mack for his management.
According to reports, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into the judge responsible for sending Meek to prison.
