Prosecutor calls for new trial for Meek Mill

By CelebretainmentMay 24, 2019

Philadelphia’s top prosecutor has called for a new trial for Meek Mill.

The 32-year-old rapper spent months in prison after he was sentenced to two-to-four years in jail for minor probation violations related to a 10-year-old gun and drug possession case in November 2017, but District Attorney Larry Krasner has argued Common Pleas Court Judge Genece Brinkley “abused discretion” and was biased against the star.

The DA’s office filed a brief questioning the judge’s “impartiality” on Wednesday (22.05.19), citing her decision to check in on Meek when he was doing community service at a homeless shelter and later criticising him for not doing more.
