Over the past few months, much of the industry has rallied behind Meek Mill even with the popular #freemeekmill hashtag continuously trending. Even with all this national support, Meek still stands no chance against the court system.
The judge ruling over the case, Genece Brinkley, has denied all his request to be reconsidered.
“Defendant received proper notice of all alleged probation violations in advance of his hearing,” she wrote, according to court documents. “The sentence imposed was not manifestly excessive and this Court stated sufficient reasons on the record to support a state sentence of 2 to 4 years.”
Meek Mill's law team still holds on to their belief that the judge is biased against Meek. The Philly rapper's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, told TMZ, “This ruling from Judge Genece Brinkley simply reaffirms the fact she has turned Meek Mill’s case into a personal vendetta.”
He continued, “In spite of the recommendations from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, which was supported by Governor Tom Wolf, the judge continues to stand alone in supporting Officer Reginald Graham’s perjured testimony as well as his criminal behavior that has been documented.”
We're praying for you Meek! Stay strong!
