Meek Mill will be returning to court soon in order to advocate for his previous conviction to be overturned. Meek was at last granted an appellate court hearing earlier today (6/4).
It has also been confirmed that Meek will not be going before Genece Brinkley, the controversial judge that has been accused of having a personal vendetta against the rapper. Brinkley is also the judge that denied Meek’s efforts for another trial back in 2018.
One of Meek’s attorneys, Jordan Siev, had this to say regarding the upcoming trial:
“We’re looking forward to the oral argument before the Superior Court of Pennsylvania and to, hopefully, having Meek’s conviction vacated. In light of the District Attorney’s recent filing, where he supports the granting of a new trial to Meek and the recusal of Judge Brinkley, we hope to have this injustice rectified once and for all.”
Meek Mill’s original trial was full of inconsistencies, including an allegedly false testimony from a police officer. After several years of dealing with the system, Meek will finally have a fair chance at clearing his name. The trial is scheduled for July 16th, 2019 at 3:30pm.
