If by now you haven’t been keeping up with Meek Mill and his legal troubles, things are taking a turn for the worst for the MMG, rapper.
Pennsylvania Judge Genece Brinkley sentenced Meek Mill to two to four years in prison for violating his probation. In 2008, Meek was convicted on drug and gun charges but released in 2009 under a five year parole agreement. Since then prosecutors say Mill has violated parole by numerous arrest charges including his most recent charges of reckless endangerment and fighting at a St. Louis airport. Although bother charges were later dropped, the judge said each arrest violated Mill’s parole.
“I’ve been trying to help you since 2009,” Brinkley said, citing a failed drug test, failure to comply with a court order restricting his travel and two other unrelated arrests. “You basically thumbed your nose at me.” stated Judge Brinkley.
Joe Tacopina, Meek Mill’s lawyer called into ‘The Angie Martinez Show” and claims that the Philadelphia judge has engaged in inappropriate and “vindictive” behavior toward his client while she has handled his case. Tacopina accused the judge requested that the rapper include her name in a song and had given him unsolicited advice on who should manage him. Judge Brinkley did not respond to multiple messages requesting comment.
Mr. Tacopina said that the rapper’s legal team would appeal the ruling.
