After many rallies and cries of “free Meek” the possibility of Philly rapper, Meek Mill, being released just got greater! Meek has been granted a post-conviction hearing by the same judge, Judge Genece Brinkley of the Common Pleas Court, who previously sentenced him to 2-4 years.
Meek’s legal team filed a Post-Conviction Relief Act petition, after the discovery of possible corruption in Meek Mill’s original case, back in 2008. It has also been previously reported that his original arrest, back in 2007, contained corruption, as well. According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office has a list secretly composed of officers who are suspect and not deemed as credible. Well, a testifying officer in the rapper’s 2008 trial, Reginald Graham, is one of the police officers on this list!
The purpose of the trial is to really figure out what really happened with Meek Mill’s case and his lawyer says he’s confident it will result in Meek being released. He says, “there were 800 cases that were dismissed or overturned upon discovery of this group of officers who have been committing crimes, lying about circumstances of arrests, and falsifying documents.” He goes on to say, “One of the officers is the same one who not only arrested Meek but made allegations that Meek has always denied. This is the only one that testified against Meek.”
The hearing is set to take place on April 16th. What y’all think he will do first, if he gets out, Live Squad?
