Meek Mill Appeals Prison Sentence, Requests Judge’s Recusal

After being sentenced to 2-4 years in prisonMeek Mill is filing a motion seeking his prison release and for his probation to be terminated, Mill’s lawyer told Billboard. Mill also requested the recusal of Judge Genece Brinkley, who handed down the sentence. Attorney Joe Tacopina has argued that Brinkley “clearly had a personal vendetta” against Meek. The rapper was arrested in March on misdemeanor assault charges and in August for reckless driving and reckless endangerment. Meek’s attorney argues that since charges from both of those incidents were dropped, he should be granted time served and an imminent prison release. JAY-Z released a statement calling the judge’s decision “unjust and heavy handed.”
