FBI queries Judge who sentenced Meek Mill to jail
Meek’s lawyer alleges ‘enormous bias.’
As reported by TMZ, the judge who gave Meek Mill (real name: Robert Williams) what has been described by many as a rather harsh jail term, is reportedly being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Judge Genece Brinkley is being investigated by the FBI for possible relationships she might have with rival music mogul in Philadelphia, after she sentenced the rapper to two to four years for violating his probation – even though prosecutors asked for NO prison time
Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina has publicly claimed Brinkley showed “enormous bias” against the star and acted “inappropriately” by repeatedly asking the rapper to drop his current management, Roc Nation, and sign with Philly music figure Charlie Mack, whom Meek worked with early in his career.
According to a report by New York Post, undercover agents have been in the courtroom following Meek’s case since April 2016, and the Philly music mogul, Charlie Mack, allegedly once told Meek he knew the judge and could help him with his case. Mack denied that claim to the Post.
Meek’s lawyer says Judge Brinkley also once asked Meek to do a remix to a Boyz II Men song and to give her a shout-out on it, and that her harsh sentence was a result of him shooting her down.
Rick Ross and Dr. J took to the streets Monday for a #FreeMeekMill rally and it looks like the outcry attracted the attention of FBI to the case.
