Meek Mill is granted an appellate court hearing. Finally, justice may prevail for Rihmeek Mill aka Meek Mill the Philadelphia born rapper. It appears that judge Genece Brinkley was taken off of Meek’s case. Allegedly, judge Brinkley appeared to have a vendetta against the rapper.
The conviction that led to Meek’s probation issues
Meek Mill has been on probation for more than 10 years at this point. If Meek goes before the Superior Court will his conviction be overturned? The case which has been problematic for Meek was the conviction in 2008. Meek was arrested by an officer, Reginald Graham who gave false testimony in his case. Graham testified that Meek was selling drugs and posting a gun at officers during his arrest. Meek denied the allegations. Graham’s partner, Jerold Gibson, later submitted a sworn affidavit agreeing with Meek’s story, according to Rolling Stones.
What could happen if Meek gets a new trial?
Meek Mill hearing is scheduled for July 16, 2019. Meek’s attorney, Jordan Siev is looking forward to presenting the case to the Superior Court. Siev hopes that the conviction will be vacated. Meek does have a good chance of having the charges vacated. The Philadelphia District attorney, Larry Krasner asked for Judge Brinkley to recuse herself from Meek’s case, according to Complex. And, judge Brinkley has been removed. However, things could go either way depending on how strong an argument his attorney Siev can present. Hopefully, Meek Mill will get justice once and for all.
