Federal Bureau of Investigation launches probe into judge who sent Meek Mill to jail

Posted November 15, 2017

Meek Mill now sits in a jail cell after a judge sentenced him to 2-4 years in prison for a parole violation.

Mill's lawyers contend that Brinkley demonstrated a personal bias involving Mill in a private in-chambers meeting during a February 5, 2016, probation-violation hearing.

The prosecutor called for no prison time, but Judge Brinkley said during the sentencing hearing that the 30-year-old musician had wasted several chances to clean up his act.

The first filing Tuesday - a day after hundreds of supporters met outside the city Criminal Justice Center demanding Mill's release - asked Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley to disqualify herself from further involvement his case and allow a new judge to reconsider Mill's prison sentence.

Mill appeared in court last Monday after a pair of arrests this year - one for popping wheelies on a dirt bike and another for getting into a fight - that violated his probation from a 2008 gun and drug case.

"(Meek's) frustrated, really frustrated and knows he's being treated different than anyone else", Mill's attorney Joe Tacopina told CNN in a phone interview Thursday. "We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career". It's not my music. "I want you to know that I am personally invested in him so that he can help others".

Twitter to permanently double the length of tweets after experiement
Rozen said during the testing period, only 5% of tweets topped the 140-character limit, and only 2% went beyond 190 characters. However, the company chose to not rely on a user's system language or location to implement these varying limits.

"Brinkley replied, "'OK, suit yourself, '" according to Tacopina.

The violations which brought Judge Genece E. Brinkley to her decision were an atercation at a St. Louis airport in March and the second in August when Meek was arrested in NY for reckless endangerment for popping wheelies on his dirt bike and not wearing a helmet.

He also claimed that the judge bizarrely asked Meek Mill to leave his current Roc Nation management to sign with her friend. Mack denied that claim to the Post.

Mack was among about 50 persons to offer support to Mill during an August 18, 2014, probation violation hearing before Brinkley.

The FBI did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation's request for comment in time for publication. That move made her into a witness in the same case she was presiding over.
