Meek Mill is beginning to explore options to get his 2-4 year prison sentence for violating his probation reversed.
TMZ reports that the rapper’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, is filing a motion hoping to get Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley removed from the case. He will also be filing an official complaint with the judicial conduct board.
Tacopina contends that Brinkley has a vendetta against his client stemming from two alleged incidents.
He claims she once asked the “House Party” hit maker to leave Roc Nation management in order to sign with a Philadelphia agent that she knows.
In addition, Brinkley reportedly tried to get Meek to record a remake ofBoys II Men’s “On Bended Knee” and shout her out. A request that was refused.
There’s one more legal long shot that Meek will attempt. He’s applying toPennsylvania’s Board of Pardons, but that process can take a minimum of three years to complete.
A Change.org petition to have Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf look into the case has garnered 348,000 signatures.
That probably won’t help much either because a spokesperson for Wolf says his hands are tied by state law.
Meek, 30, born Robert Williams, has been on probation since 2009, stemming from a drug and gun conviction.
