Meek Mill DA Moves to Get Him Outta Jail NOW ... Judge Shuts It Down!!!

Philadelphia DA says Meek Mill should get a new trial sparking hopes for release

Mill's lawyers have unsuccessfully appealed the sentence multiple times and have called for Judge Genece Brinkley to recuse herself from the case. In its second filing for Brinkley's dismissal from the case, the team claimed that Brinkley "exceeded the judicial role" and took an "unusual interest" in Meek Mill's career. "I am a political prisoner", said a frustrated and angry Meek last week.

The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said in court Monday that the Philly rapper's gun- and drug-related convictions from 2008 should be overturned, after the credibility of Mill's arresting officer was recently impugned. Mill, 30, has been in prison since November for a parole violation, on charges that stem from 2008.

Ten years ago, the rapper was arrested for drug dealing and gun possession. The admission, made by Assistant District Attorney Liam Riley during a status hearing, marks the first time prosecutors have agreed with Meek's legal time on record about his questionable arrest. "Now the fact that he's in jail is even more egregious", he said.

Numerous figures have demonstrated their solidarity with Meek Mill, including Al Sharpton, Colin Kaepernick, and Drake.

In a written statement sent to HipHopDX, Tacopina provided some further insight into today's proceedings.

Earning the backing of the Philadelphia District Attorney's office was a considerable victory for Mill's team nonetheless.

The DA's office decision is a positive move in the right direction, but his fate still rests in the hands of Brinkley-who many fear has a conflict of interest informing her handling of Mill's case. DA also stated in open court that the prior DA was aware that Officer Graham was untrustworthy as far back as 2005, which was never disclosed to Meek's defense team. "We will apply for emergency relief with the Supreme Court immediately, and are sure that this travesty of justice will be rectified soon".
