It appears that ‘Wins and Losses’ rapper Meek Mill took another HUGE loss! Meek’s request for early release from prison has been DENIED!
According to the NY Daily News, Judge Genece E. Brinkley issued her decision Monday to deny Meek Mills’ Post Conviction Relief Act request to be released from prison, declaring that his sentence of two to four years behind bars was “absolutely necessary” after he violated parole.
The ruling comes after Meek’s arresting officer, Reginald Graham, was listed as a ‘dirty cop’ who is under investigation by federal authorities for his corruptive acts.
“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’s legal team was anticipating the request to be denied, so they filed petitions to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court two weeks ago to not only let the rapper out on bail but also order the recusal of Brinkley in his case. Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, slammed Monday’s decision as proof that Brinkley has turned the case into a “personal vendetta” against Meek, the daily news reports.
“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,” Tacopina said in a statement.
“Fortunately, we have already filed petitions with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to secure his release, and we remain hopeful that the Court will right this injustice very soon.”
Meek Mills whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, was sentenced to serve two to four years in prison for violating his probation back in November.
