Meek Mill may have gotten out of prison, but the fight is not yet over.
The Philadelphia rapper was released on bail yesterday (Apr. 25), but will still have to head to court to overturn his 10 year conviction case due to the arresting officer having a reputation for falsifying facts.
Part of the decision from the Philadelphia Supreme Court gave a scathing opinion on Judge Genece Brinkley and recommended that she should recuse herself from the case saying that she has been fair to Meek throughout.
According to TMZ from her lawyer A. Charles Peruto, JR.
Peruto tells TMZ the judge does not feel the Supreme Court in any way repudiated her rulings when it ordered that Meek go free without bail, pending the next hearing in June.
Judge Brinkley will not necessarily side with the prosecutor and Meek’s lawyer, both of whom are asking the judge to toss the conviction.
Peruto says there were other cops who testified in the case, and if their credibility is intact the judge might not overturn the conviction.
Meek’s lawyer Joe Tacopina responded to the claims saying that she should take the hint given from the Supreme Court.
Pennsylvania law that says it should be done “in the interest of justice.”
He is confident that Meek will get the original case overturned.
