Meek Mill won’t be a free man anytime soon, because the judge in his case cancelled his bid to be released on bail.
Judge Genece Brinkley didn’t give reasons for her decision, but it came amidst pressure from everyone to the Governor of the state of Pennsylvania to release the rapper, who has been in prison since November for a probation violation. Meek’s team has argued Judge Brinkley is biased and bears a grudge against him.
Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, tells TMZ, “This ruling from Judge Genece Brinkley simply reaffirms the fact she has turned Meek Mill’s case into a personal vendetta.”
Tacopina continues, “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.”
Meek’s legal team is appealing to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in an attempt to get him released.
