Judge Denies Meek Mill's Bail Petition And Refuses To resign From your Case

He can't take a break.

Meek Mill's offer to be released from prison has been knocked down. Judge Genece Brinkley, who has been heavily scrutinized for his handling of the Dreamchasers founder of the violation of probation case, it rejected his bail application on Monday (April 2).

"The defendant received adequate notice of all alleged violations of probation prior to the hearing," she wrote in court documents obtained by the New York Daily News. "The sentence imposed was not manifestly excessive and this Court stated sufficient reasons in the record to support a state sentence of 2 to 4 years."

Judge Brinkley also refused to recuse herself from the case amid allegations of bias against the Meek. The judge specifically denied claims she asked him to give you a shoutout in a song.

"This bald accusation has no basis in reality," she wrote. "There is no evidence to support this claim. The court repeatedly told Defendant that he may not require a special treatment just because he has chosen to be an artist."

Meek of lawyers have already presented a petition to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, in an effort to get his client out of prison. The legal adviser considers that the Monday decision confirms their allegations of bias against Judge Brinkley.

"This ruling by Judge Genece Brinkley simply reaffirms the fact that she has become a Meek Mill event in a personal vendetta," Meek's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, said in a statement Philadelphia CBS 3.

The judge's ruling comes after a report revealed Meek's original arresting officer, Reginald Graham, was on a list of suspected corrupt police officers who were part of a "giving witness" to the list. After the report, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said that he was the opposition Manso to be released on bail. The governor of pennsylvania Tom Wolf came out in support of the "Dreams and Nightmares", the rapper of the release.
