FBI Reportedly Investigating Judge Who Sent Meek Mill To Prison

fbi reportedly investigating judge who sent meek mill to prison

Judge Genece Brinkley is reportedly being investigated for a possible “extortionate demand.”

Only one day after Meek Mill supporters held a rally outside of Philadelphia’s Criminal Justice Center to have his prison sentence reduced, it’s been reported that the judge who sent him to prison for two to four years for violating his probation is being investigated.

According to PageSix, Judge Genece Brinkley is being investigated by the FBI. Sources have told the site that the FBI has been monitoring Meek’s court proceedings for quite some time.

The source stated, “The feds have an interest in the judge and [her] potential relationships. This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016.”

Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, recently revealed that Brinkley has a vendetta against his client, stating she “crossed the line of professionalism” and “traditional conduct.” Tacopina also recalls the time that Brinkley asked Meek to remake Boyz II Men’s song “On Bended Knee” and shout her out. Brinkley wasn’t too happy when Meek refused to do so, which may have caused the harsh sentence.

Tacopina added that Brinkley asked Meek to leave Roc Nation to sign with a friend of hers, Charlie Mack, who previously worked with Meek during the beginning of his career. But Mack has denied the claims, adding that he doesn’t know Brinkley, “I’ve spent more time talking to you than I ever talked to the judge. There is no conspiracy, Meek is an old friend of 30-plus years.”
