After getting sentenced to prison time last fall, Meek Mill’s defense team claimed the judge in his probation case was holding a grudge against him, and even suggested he drop Roc Nation as his management for a local manager she had ties with.
However, since then, portions of transcripts surfaced that appear to show that those claims are false.
On Tuesday (Jan. 30), Meek’s lawyer Jordan Siev appears on The Angie Martinez Show on Power 105 in New York City to discuss those transcripts, as well as other court documents.
Breaking down the details, he pointed to Judge Genece Brinkley’s bias in Meek’s sentencing. “It’s a terrible situation that Meek finds himself in jail going on three months now, having never missed a court date or committed a crime since he was 19 years old. He’s now 30, and he’s been in jail since November, based on ‘supposed’ technical violations.”
Siev also added that Meek’s team feels the judge has stepped over the line in injecting herself into the rapper’s career. “We think that Judge Brinkley has taken an unusual interest in his career, and stepped over the line from acting solely as a judge should act and injecting herself into his professional career in ways that are not appropriate.”
