Meek Mill Denied Bail, But His Legal Team Will Continue To Fight For His Freedom, Plan To Immediately Appeal!
The #FreeMeekMill movement hit a bump in the road on Friday. Judge Genece Brinkley denied his recent bail request, claiming he’s still a danger to the community in “Philadelphia, New York, Missouri, and other locations throughout the United States.”
As most of you know, the 30-year-old rapper was sentenced to two to four years in Pennsylvania state prison in November for violating probation stemming from a drug and weapons conviction in 2008. His attorneys believe the judge working the case should be removed because she’s “offered inappropriate personal and professional advice to the defendant.”
But Brinkley truly believes she’s simply protecting the country from the dangerous Meek Mill…
“He continues to be a danger to himself based upon a history of continuous use of illegal drugs, and is an increased and greater flight risk because he already has been sentenced to a term in state prison and gave false information to authorities when he was arrested in St. Louis, Missouri.”
So yeah, things are looking a bit bleak for Meek at the moment, but his attorneys are hopeful and they will continue to fight for his freedom. They will appeal this most recent decision…
“We are very disappointed with Judge Brinkley’s decision to deny Mr. Williams bail, which continues this travesty of justice. He has never missed any court dates, and poses absolutely no threat to the community making him an ideal candidate for bail, a conclusion the District Attorney did not oppose. We intend to immediately appeal this decision so Mr. Williams can be released from prison while we continue to work to overturn this wrongful and unjust sentence.”
It’s a tough situation. On one hand, it seems pretty clear that this judge is being suspiciously hard on Meek, but on the other hand, he’s the one who messed up in the first place.
We’ll see if they can get him out before Christmas!
