It has now been declared that apparent bias against rapper Meek Mill was conducted by Judge Genece Brinkley. Reports came in that Brinkley suggested that Meek and Nicki Minaj should do a remake of a Boyz II Men song and shout her out in the lyrics. If these allegations have any merit, it will come to light as a new case has been granted to the Philly rapper. NBC Philadelphia is reporting breaking news on this front.
District Attorney Larry Krasner is taking a stand by stating that Judge Genece Brinkley was biased when sentencing Meek Mill. He has claimed, Judge Brinkley’s court, as “abusing its discretion” when they sentenced Meek to 2-4 years in prison for violating his probation. Krasner agrees with Meek’s critiques of Brinkley and her bias, saying, “The public perception of unfairness and bias is exactly what the court’s behavior has engendered here”.
A situation occurred when Meek Mill was doing community service at a homeless shelter. The DA felt that the Judge reportedly criticized him for bagging clothes for the homeless instead of serving them food. The D.A. states about that situation: “Here, instead of asking a probation officer to visit the shelter to assess Williams’ compliance with the court’s community service requirement, Judge Brinkley personally assumed the role of investigator. No evidence suggests that the judge routinely made this type of unannounced personal visit to monitor her other probationers.”
This incident was the spark for a new trail. The D.A. continued by saying, “For the above stated reasons, Appellant [Robert] Williams should be awarded a post-conviction relief in the form of a new trial. In the alternative, his recusal motion should be granted and this matter should be remanded for a violation of probation hearing before a new judge.”
