Philadelphia Prosecutor Supports New Trial for Meek Mill

Philadelphia Prosecutor Supports New Trial for Meek Mill

According to Philly.com, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said in court Monday during a status hearing for Mill that the rapper, born Robert Rihmeek Williams, should be granted a new trial due to the questionable credibility of his arresting officer, in regard to his initial conviction on a drugs and weapons charge in 2008, when he was 19.

Even with the latest news from the Philadelphia DA's office, Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley, who sentenced Meek in November, didn't agree to vacate Meek's conviction in court Monday.

In November, Mill received a two-to-four year prison sentence for violating his probation. As was expected, there was no such empathy from Brinkley today, as she reportedly simply scheduled another hearing for June and dismissed any pleas for Meek's release on bail.

Protesters demonstrate in front of a courthouse during a hearing for rapper Meek Mill, Monday April 16, 2018 in Philadelphia. In February, Meek's lawyers questioned the credibility of a police officer involved in the 2007. "Our office also holds the position that we do not oppose Mr. Mill being released on bail while his appeals are being considered". DA also stated in open court that the prior DA was aware that Officer Graham was untrustworthy as far back as 2005, which was never disclosed to Meek's defense team.

Among supporters in the crowd was Mill's 6-year-old son who Fox 29 Philadelphia quoted as saying, "I miss my dad very much". The group indicated that Judge Brinkley allegedly requested to re-record Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee" and demanded that Mill should switch his management team. They have called to recuse herself and also have resisted the sentence a few occasions.

She added that "none of the allegations by (the) defendant constitute evidence that this court is unable to act impartially and without personal bias or prejudice with respect to this matter".
