PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A lawyer for Meek Mill is asking a Philadelphia choose to recuse herself earlier than he appeals the rapper’s sentence of two to 4 years in jail.
Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley sentenced Mill final week for violating probation in a virtually decade-old gun and drug case.
On Tuesday, his legal professionals requested Brinkley to step down, saying she stepped out of her judicial bounds quite a few occasions. Among the examples cited was the choose suggesting Mill document a model of the Boyz II Men track “On Bended Knee” and particularly point out the choose in it. The lawyer says after Mill declined, the choose replied: “Suit yourself.”
On Monday night time, former Philadelphia 76er Julius Erving, Eagles participant Malcolm Jenkins and rapper Rick Ross have been amongst a whole lot of individuals gathered to protest Mill’s imprisonment.
