FBI Reportedly Launches Probe Into Judge Who Sentenced Meek Mill To Jail

14 November 2017, 09:25 | Myron Mathis

Comedian Kevin Hart tweeted “Let's go Philadelphia.... #FreeMeekMill.”

Not Released

Judge Genece Brinkley is the focus of an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, the New York Post reported Monday (Nov. 13). "We stand for justice", read a poster for the rally tweeted by the Roots' Tariq Trotter, also known as Black Thought.

Meek Mill received the prison sentence after multiple probation violations that include an arrest involving ATV riding charges in NY and for an altercation at a St. Louis airport earlier this year.

Mill, who had been on probation for a decade, was arrested in March after he got into a fight in St. Louis.

Gathering outside downtown Philadelphia's Criminal Justice Center, fellow Rapper Rick Ross, 76ers basketball icon Julius Irving and Eagles star Malcolm Jenkins spoke at the event to advocate for Mill's release, reported NBC 10 Philadelphia. He was subsequently arrested for driving recklessly on a dirt bike in New York City.


Tacopina has also publicly claimed Brinkley showed "enourmous bias" against the rapper, and acted "inappropriately" for encouraging him to drop his current management and sign with the Philly music figure he'd worked with earlier in his career.

According to Tacopina, the judge is angry at Mill because he wouldn't Boyz II Men song with a reference to her in the middle. I explained to her that I recognized Meek did some dumb things in the past and was working hard to make things right. The letter was written three days prior to Meek Mill's sentencing.

Michael Rubin, who is also the executive chairman of the apparel company Fanatics and the co-owner of the NHL's New Jersey Devils, penned a letter to Judge Genece E. Brinkley, who handed down the sentence after Mill failed a drug test and violated travel restrictions set out by probation. "I want you to know that I am personally invested in helping him so that he can help others".
