Tocopina has filed a motion to have Judge Brinkley recused from further ruling on the case and he wants his client’s probation revoked and for him to be released from prison. The Philly rapper also has his own cell so he is not sharing a cell with another inmate who would want to do him harm. The Philadelphia District Attorney supports the bail motion and also recommended no jail time for the rapper in the first place, but the judge ignored that recommendation and handed down a 2-4 years prison sentence. The Dreamchasers rapper is now disappointed that his planned bail hearing has been canceled because it was done in error. On Friday, news surfaced online that Meek Mill will be in front of Judge Genece Brinkley for a bail hearing set for November 27. According to Billboard, the bail hearing was “canceled due to an administrative error.” Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, confirmed late yesterday that the bail hearing has been canceled, but there is no word yet on when or if he will get another bail hearing. In that prison, Meek will also be assigned a job to do that usually pats gun 19 cents an hour. In that undisclosed prison, he was placed with the general population so that he can workout and exercise his creativity (writing music). Meek Mill was moved subsequently moved to another prison all entirely, TMZ reported. Earlier this week, Meek Mill’s attorney filed legal docs asking for the rapper to be taken out of solitary confinement and place with the general population of the local state prison he is being housed. That job can be something like cleaning prison cells and cooking in the kitchen. Authorities say they put him there to protect him from the rest of the prison inmates, but Meek says that he will be respected because of his celebrity status and his work in the community.

Meek Mill was relieved from solitary confinement but his planned bail hearing was revoked. In his legal docs, the rapper argued that he is in solitary confinement for 23 hours per day and that can be detrimental his human psyche and bad for his creativity and active lifestyle.

Nevertheless, the MMG rapper has been getting a lot of support from his celebrity peers and fans including JAY-Z, Kevin Hart, and T.I. According to Tacopina, the judge is from the same section of Philly where Meek is from and has a grudge against the rapper for the past few years. The rapper got the shocking news when he turned up for a court hearing in Philadelphia on Monday this week. During a meeting in the judges chamber last year, the female judge suggested that Meek Mill did a remake of Boyz II Men’s classic “On Bended Knee” and give her a shout-out and the rapper refused to do it. Additionally, the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer, both recommended no prison time, but the judge handed down the heavy sentence regardless. The lawyer claims that the judge had a grudge with the Philly rapper ever since and was out to get him. It’s unknown when Meek will start his prison sentence and how far his appeal will take him.

Meek Mill plans to appeal a judges “heavy handed” sentencing of up to four years in state prison for parole violation. The sentence handed down by the Judge — against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer — is unjust and heavy handed. We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career,” JAY-Z wrote on Facebook last night. One of Meek’s attorneys, Joe Tacopina, says there are grounds to appeal the sentencing which he calls bias and heavy handed.

His high profile lawyer, Joe Tacopina, confirmed the news yesterday. Back in March of this year, he was slapped with a misdemeanor assault charge in St. Meek Mill is currently working on some new music but he has yet to announced any new albums or mixtapes. Earlier this month, he struck a deal in a traffic case in New York City which sees him walking away with just community service. For the traffic case, Meek will have that record wiped clean from his name, as part of the deal he struck. This is the second W for the Philly rapper in October in the courts. The Dreamchaser rapper is looking to put all of his legal troubles behind him so he can clean up his image to attract more corporate deals, or perhaps he just doesn’t want them hanging over his head. Just like his NYC traffic case, Meek Mill struck a deal with prosecutors which will see him doing some more community service, TMZ reported. Tweet
