Meek Mill's Controversial Judge Has Refused to Recuse Herself
The Meek Mill saga continues
Genece Brinkley, the controversial judge who sentenced the rapper two to four years for violating probation, also has refused to recuse herself. She made the ruling, despite the fact that she has faced numerous accusations of unethical behavior.
According to TMZ, Brinkley did not give a reason for her decision. Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, talked to TMZ after he ruling:
“This ruling from Judge Genece Brinkley simply reaffirms the fact she has turned Meek Mill’s case into a personal vendetta…in spite of the recommendations from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, which was supported by Governor Tom Wolf, the judge continues to stand alone in supporting Officer Reginald Graham’s perjured testimony as well as his criminal behavior that has been documented.”
Tacopina has claimed that Brinkley has done odd things like ask Meek to shout her out in a song. Brinkley says that there is “zero evidence” she has done anything unethical. She also writes that the two to four sentence is “resonable.”
Meek Mill’s team will appeal to to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
