Meek Mill judge denies request to reconsider his sentence

The Philadelphia judge who sentenced Meek Mill to 2-4 years in state prison for violating probation from his 2009 drug and weapons case in November 2017, has denied his appeal to be released from prison on bail.

According to court documents obtained by the New York Daily News, Judge Genece Brinkleyissued the decision after refusing to recuse herself from the rapper's case.

“Defendant received proper notice of all alleged probation violations in advance of his hearing,” Brinkley wrote. “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.”

Brinkley also denied allegations of her “bias and unusual personal interest” in the case after Meek Mill's lawyer Joe Tacopina claimed that she pressured the Philadelphia rapper to leave his management company, record a Boyz II Men cover and give her a shout out.

“This bald allegation has no basis in reality,” Brinkley wrote about the song request. “There is zero evidence to support this claim. The court has repeatedly told Defendant that he cannot demand special treatment just because he has chosen to be an entertainer.”
