Meek Mills Case Is Moving To The Supreme Court

Published

on

Meek Mill continues to be the face of social injustice.

The Philly rapper is currently serving a 2 to 4-year prison term for violation of prohibition. The case has been in the news due to the Judge Genece Brinkley involvement with the case. The judge has been accused of extorting Meek Mill for a role in the music industry.

Meek Mill’s team also filed a motion to remove Brinkley from the case, claiming she has “exceeded the judicial role by sometimes essentially acting as a prosecutor and, at other times, taking an unusual interest in, and trying to inject herself into [Meek’s] personal and professional life.” A decision on her standing has yet to be made.

Meek’s lawyers previously filed a motion to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to get him out on bail, which required approval from Krasner. According to the filing, Philly D.A. Larry Krasner “does not oppose defendant’s application to the extent he requests release on bail pending the current proceedings, but opposes all other requested relief at this time.”

“We are encouraged by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s steadfast stance in not opposing Meek Mill’s release on bail at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court level while the current legal proceedings continue, even in light of Judge Brinkley’s vindictive and erroneous decision,” Meek’s lawyer Joe Taponica said in a statement to Complex.

Meek Mill’s team also filed a motion to remove Brinkley from the case, claiming she has “exceeded the judicial role by sometimes essentially acting as a prosecutor and, at other times, taking an unusual interest in, and trying to inject herself into [Meek’s] personal and professional life.” A decision on her standing has yet to be made.

As of right now, there’s no timetable set for the Supreme Court to decide whether or not Meek can post bail while he appeals his 2-4 year sentence for a probation violation.
