Meek Mill is making news once again!
Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner has filed an appeal with the Pennsylvania Superior Court asking for a new trial with a different judge. Wednesday, the D.A.’s Office filed documents stating that Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley’s “public perception of unfairness and bias” has been evident throughout the trial and that she should recuse herself from the rapper’s probation violation case.
Brinkley overstepped her duties as a judge, including checking up on Mill whose legal name is Robert Mihmeek Williams while he was performing court-ordered community service at a homeless shelter.
Judge Brinkley found Mill in violation of his 10-year probation and sentenced him to 2 to 4 years in state prison. He served five months before being released in April 2018 while his appeal was pending. Judge Brinkley denied his new trial.
