Subscribe To Meek Mill Is Requesting A New Judge For Criminal Case Updates
Last month, Meek Mill found himself at odds with Judge Genece C. Brinkley. The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania released the rapper from prison over a drug and weapon conviction from 2008, but Mill hadn't won favors with the judge, who refused to leave the case -- even when the Supreme Court requested she step aside. Well, Meek Mill filed the legal documents for another court case, but Brinkley might not return. According to recent reports, everything is seemingly in order for the forthcoming trial, but they will vote today on whether or not Brinkley will rule over this new trial. The argument is that she might be biased and, therefore unfit to hold trial. Here's everything we know about Meek Mill's latest legal situation.
In the recently-filed court documents, the District Attorney in Meek Mill's impending case claimed that in light of "recent disclosures regarding this officer's misconduct," the Commonwealth cannot find the officer's testimony credible at this moment in time, according to TMZ. Therefore, a new trial is deemed necessary. The cop involved in the initial case (Reginald Graham) is believed to be corrupt, which is why this case needs to be revisited, according to most parties involved. This information was central to the original case, and while it was presented initially, Judge Genece Brinkley told Meek to sit in jail without bail for 60 days until the scheduled hearing commenced.
When Meek Mill was released from prison last month, the rapper made the following statement on social media in relation to his recent legal fiasco.
