Philadelphia's District Attorney's Office believes Meek Mill deserves a new trial and a new judge in his probation violation case.
According to TMZ, the D.A.'s office made an unprecedented move by recently filing documents in Pennsylvania Superior Court, stating Judge Genece Brinkley's appearance of bias has been evident throughout the case and therefore proves Meek should be retried.
As fans know, Judge Brinkley sentenced Meek to two to four years behind bars for violating his parole back in November 2017. However, after many called for the 32-year-old rapper's release, citing Brinkley's alleged "unjust" and "bias" ruling, Meek was let out in April 2018. He then appealed the case and asked for a new trial. However, Judge Brinkley refused to grant a retrial, a number of times.
In the new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, the D.A. calls out Brinkley's alleged bias against Meek, citing "a surprise visit she made to a homeless shelter where Meek was doing court-ordered community service," as backing. The D.A. says Brinkley's visit was inappropriate as it is not at all what judges are supposed to do since court-appointed community service is monitored by probation officers who then report back to the judge.
According to the documents, Brinkley additionally "abused her discretion" when she sentenced Meek to two to four years for "technical violations" of his probation. The D.A. adds that Meek is no threat to the community, has completed drug treatment, and therefore deserves another shot in court without Brinkley as the judge.
