Meek Mill Verdict Likely to Be Reversed
Just one day after the Reform Philly rally, Meek Mill’s outlook appears brighter.
On Wednesday (March 14), the District Attorney filed documents that say there’s a “strong likelihood” that the Maybach Music Group rapper’s conviction will be overturned due to the Philadelphia Police Department’s corruption scandal, according to TMZ.
Prosecutors say that hundreds of other rulings have already been overturned and that Mill is likely to follow in that pattern, according to the report. Thus, prosecutors say there’s no reason the Philly MC should be held without bail.
Previously, Meek’s legal team filed a motion to have Mill released on bail while the courts rule on his 2-4 year prison sentence. They have also filed an additional motion to have Judge Genece Brinkley removed from the case.
Meek Mill’s mother Kathy Williams has already thanked the District Attorney for this filing. “I would like to thank the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office for carefully evaluating my son’s matter and not opposing the request for bail,” she said in a statement. “The fact that Robert’s entire conviction could be overturned is a blessing and I pray that God gives Judge Brinkley the wisdom to make the right decision and allow my son to return home to his family. I truly believe justice will prevail.”
Yesterday, Meek called in to a TIDAL-streamed rally that included his lawyer Joe Tacopina and Rev. Al Sharpton. “I appreciate all the love and support from Philadelphia and all over the world,” he said. “I’m just happy to be able to shed light on the situation that we’ve been going through for years…If it takes me to be the one to bring the light to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and to the world, I accept it and I stand up to it.”
