Meek Mill denied bail, judge labels him a 'danger to the community'

Meek Mill Sentenced 2 to 4 Years in Prison

The imprisoned musician's legal team wrote in a court filing that he and his representatives were aware of the investigation into Judge Genece Brinkley's conduct since 2016.

"The existence of a federal investigation involving Judge Brinkley's conduct regarding Mr. Williams, combined with Judge Brinkley's awareness of that investigation raises further doubts as to her ability to preside impartially, and thus is an additional factor supporting recusal", the motion, filed by Brian McMonagle of McMonagle, Perri, McHugh & Mischak, said.

Mack, who previously worked with Meek early on in his career, has denied any links to Brinkley as she also faces an FBI investigation over her reported actions. The judge had no comment.

Last week (ends01Dec17), the defense lawyers turned to officials at Pennsylvania's Superior Court to step in amid claims Judge Brinkley has been ignoring their motions for bail, asking them to consider their emergency petition to free Meek pending their appeal.

Mill's probation officer and a prosecutor had recommended he not be jailed. She cited Mill failing drug tests, compiling with travel restrictions, and other arrests in Missouri and NY as reasons for sending him to prison.

Williams, who has been on probation since 2008, was arrested twice this year, and Brinkley said she imposed the sentence because he had repeatedly flaunted the court.

The appeals charge that the judge has made the case personal and has wrongly assumed an "essentially prosecutorial" role. TMZ reported that Judge Brinkley had a beef with Mill because he wouldn't do a shout-out to her in the middle of a suggested Boyz II Men remake. This interaction occurred in the judge's chambers, and a transcript is unavailable.
