FBI Investigates Judge Who Sentenced Meek Mill to Prison for Probation Violation
One week after Meek Mill was sent to prison for violating his probation, the judge responsible for the seemingly harsh two to four year sentence is under even more scrutiny than he is. According to Page Six, the FBI has launched an investigation into Judge Genece Brinkley.
Sources from the site say the FBI have been monitoring the Meek proceedings for a while now, and they're looking into Judge Brinkley's possible missuse of power.
“The feds have an interest in the judge and [her] potential relationships. This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016,” says the source.
This development fits quite neatly with claims made by Meek Mill's attorney, Joe Tacopina. In recent days, Tacopina's claimed that Judge Brinkley has a personal vendetta against the MMG rapper. Last week, Tacopina claimed Brinkley requested that Meek deliver a remix of Philly R&B group Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee" and give her a shoutout on the song. Meek allegedly refused, and Tacopina says the judge responded, "Okay, suit yourself." Yikes.
In subsequent days, Tacopina's said Judge Brinkley wanted to sign with her friend's imprint instead of Roc Nation's. Meek obviously refused that, too. Now, Tacopina's filed a motion to have Judge Brinkley removed from the case all together.
