Federal Bureau of Investigation launches probe into judge who sent Meek Mill to jail

Meek Mill Omelly

This criminal (in) justice system, ripe with racial discrimination, stigmatizes, profiles, and targets young Black men for arrest at a young age, having its roots in their hyper-policed neighborhoods that they are raised in, and sadly extending into what should be a safe space-the classroom, via the school to prison pipeline.

Brinkley sentenced Mill to 2-4 years in prison for two probation violations, a sentence that some have called too harsh.

Mill had been on probation from a 2008 gun and drug case.

Judge Genece Brinkley's decision was met with immediate backlash from Mill's lawyers, celebrities, fans and the hip hop community at large.

The outcry over rapper Meek Mill's tough sentence has attracted the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which has launched a probe into the Philadelphia judge presiding over the case, Page Six has exclusively learned. "He caught a charge when he was, like, 19".

"I've spent more time talking to you than I ever talked to the judge", he told Page Six. Tacopina also said the judge was deeply disappointed that Meek Mill would turn down such a request from the judge when he is at the mercy of that same judge.

As we told you, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is reportedly investigating whether Judge Genece Brinkley has a connection to Mack and whether she tried to steer Meek's business Mack's way.

Meek's attorney Joe Tacopina has publicly claimed Brinkley showed "enormous bias" against the star and acted "inappropriately" by repeatedly asking the rapper to drop his current management, Roc Nation, and sign with Philly music figure Charlie Mack, whom Meek worked with early in his career.

Now there's been a development in the case that may be in Mill's favor.

Brinkley's alleged relationship to Mack, however, is a point of interest for the FBI, Page Six states.

"This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand", a source told the Post of Brinkley. "Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016".
