Philadelphia’s Judge Genece Brinkley is making it hard for a Dreamchaser these days. The judge behind sending Meek Mill to jail on a two to four-year sentence has shut down an opportunity to get him released.
According to reports, Brinkley refused to cave in Monday (April 16) after prosecutors tried to have her toss out a past conviction over an alleged corrupt cop’s involvement.
Philly’s D.A. Office made a rare move Monday morning in court … asking Judge Genece Brinkley to toss the 2008 conviction because it says prosecutors back then were fully aware Meek’s arresting officer, Reginald Graham, was dirty — but sat on the info. If the conviction were tossed, that would mean Meek’s probation violation would go out the window, too — and he would be released from the Pennsylvania prison where he’s serving 2-4 years. However, Judge Brinkley did not sign off, and, instead, scheduled a hearing on the matter for June. That means Meek has to sit in prison until then … at least. (TMZ)

In a new interview, Meek’s ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj addressed his stint and revealed her personal convo with Judge Genece Brinkley.
“You know what, I don’t want to talk about legal things but I will say you know, every now and then, anyway, I won’t go there. I’ll save some of those things for my album and I’m also shooting a documentary. What I will say now is – oh God – I will say that the judge in question did everything I asked of her. I can’t badmouth her because I met her personally and I know what she said to us and he knows that but of course I wouldn’t wish jail on anybody. But like I said, I’ll get into detail on that in the documentary and possibly on the album but what I will say made me shed tears was seeing his mother cry. That was the first time I was like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t take it.’ During the relationship, she was so sweet to me and even at the end when we both kinda knew it was too rocky, too bad to – she always, always showed me so much love. So I still care about her. I didn’t like seeing her cry the other day.” (Beats 1)

According to reports, Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney pulled through this week to visit Meek.
Sources at the prison tell us Kenney was spotted leaving the facility Wednesday morning with 76ers owner Michael Rubin, who’s visited several times before… including Tuesday when he brought Patriots owner Robert Kraft to visit the incarcerated rapper. According to the Mayor’s spokeswoman … Rubin invited Mayor Kenney, and the visit with Meek lasted about an hour. We’re told Hizzoner believes the rapper could better serve the community outside prison. (TMZ)
A few hours prior, MMG’s Wale revealed he had a personal conversation with Meek Milly.
