Judge in Meek Mill's Case Ordered to Hold a Bail Hearing

Al Sharpton

On Nov. 6, Judge Genece Brinkley sentenced Meek Mill, whose legal name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, to 2 - 4 years in state prison for probation violations on a almost a 10-year-old gun charge.

Meek Mill's recent incarceration has been viewed by many in the hip-hop community as an utter farce, yet it has served to raise attention to the inconsistencies of the criminal justice system. Apparently, Meek's legal team previously appealed to the higher court in an effort to get Meek released from prison, which ultimately didn't go over well.

Judge Brinkley has been criticized in this case, with many activists claiming that the sentencing was too harsh. Meek Mill is behind bars at the Chester State Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania. He also was recently arrested two times - once in St. Louis for a fight in an airport where serious charges against him were later dropped and the other for reckless driving in New York City. A lawyer for Meek Mill asked Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley to recuse herself from the case on November 14, 2017, before the rapper appeals his prison sentence. Neither the prosecutor nor parole officer in Mill's case asked for jail time. He said the rapper appeared to be "very strong, determined and not bitter".

The gunman who killed 26 people at the First Baptist Church earlier this month should never have been carrying a gun. Prospective gun owners filed 203,086 requests to the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Mill's sentencing sparked outrage on social media, which spawned hashtag #FreeMeekMill and #Justice4Meek.

Tacopina said they filed an appeal on the sentencing two weeks ago, requesting Brinkley to reconsider her decision and recuse herself from the case because she "can't be just and partial".
