Meek Mill is behind bars at the Chester State Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania. He's been locked up for almost a month after Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley sentenced him to 2 to 4 years in prison for violating probation.

According to Philly.com, habeas corpus motions are typically a last resort after a criminal defendant has exhausted other avenues of appeal.

Sources from the site say the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been monitoring the Meek Mill proceedings for a sometime now, and they're looking into Judge Brinkley's possible missuse of power.

The emergency motion contends that Brinkley has failed to respond to requests filed in her court - including one demanding her recusal.

Levandowski has declined to answer questions about the allegations, citing constitutional protections against self-incrimination. Jacobs said that Uber reached a $4.5 million settlement, including a consulting contract, after he was sacked .

Meek Mill's legal team has been critical of Judge Brinkley, saying that she has behaved inappropriately. Mill's probation officer and a prosecutor had recommended that he not be jailed.

Sharpton has joined a growing chorus of people who see Mill's case as an example of unfair and harsh treatment of African-American and Latino people in the criminal justice system.

"I think this is about an injustice that is representative of many young men of color that face an abuse of a probation or parole system", Sharpton said at the National Action Network in Harlem. "If you can do this to a successful artist like Meek Mill, you can do this to many around the country", said Sharpton. "He does not seem bitter", added Sharpton, when reporters asked about Mill's well-being. "He wanted to make sure his son and mother are all right".
