Prosecutors Say Meek Mill Conviction Should Be Overturned, Judge Brinkley STILL Hating

Philadelphia DA says Meek Mill should get a new trial sparking hopes for release

It will still be up to the judge overseeing Mill's case to determine whether a new trial actually takes place.

Photo The rapper Meek Mill in Philadelphia past year. Instead, she scheduled a hearing for June, refusing to hear Meek's lawyers arguments that the rapper should be released on bail.

The Philadelphia District Attorney's office stated in court today (April 16) that Meek Mill's gun and drug-related convictions from 2007 should be overturned and that the rapper should be granted a new trial, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

As previously noted, Meek served eight months in prison and began five year's probation in 2009, but probation violations resulted in five more months in prison in 2013 and an extension of his probation. However, Judge Brinkley, who initially sentenced the rapper in November 2017 to two to four years in jail for violating his probation, revealed that she has chose to wait until June to hear more about this case. The admission, made by Assistant District Attorney Liam Riley during a status hearing, marks the first time prosecutors have agreed with Meek's legal time on record about his questionable arrest.

Tarps were spread out along the artificial turf in right field and a hole could be seen in the roof at the downtown stadium. The ice left a significant hole in the roof and led to the postponement of Monday's game against the Royals .

20KThe fight to free Meek Mill continues. Speaking with Philly.com, Brian McMonagle, an attorney for the rapper, said he was "elated" by Krasner's appeal to dismiss Mill's 2007 charges. With a judge sentencing him to prison, despite the reported fact that neither the prosecutors nor Meek's probation officer recommended such punishment at the time, and evidence suggesting the arresting officer lied to get a conviction, the entire case seems rooted in injustice and stubbornness.

Meanwhile, one of Meek's lawyers reportedly said the defense will file motions to secure his release "immediately".

"We are thrilled that the District Attorney's office has consented to the PCRA relief which we requested on Meek's behalf", Joe Tacopina, an attorney for Meek Mill, said in a statement emailed to The FADER.

If the present case against Mill is vacated, as the DA's office is recommending, there is no guarantee that prosecutors would pursue a new trial against Mill.
