Meek Mill’s lawyers want judge out

Rapper Meek Mill’s lawyers renewed their call for a judge who sentenced him to step aside on Monday, saying “there was an FBI investigation” into her conduct and his gun and drug case in Philadelphia.

The imprisoned musician’s legal team wrote in a court filing that he and his representatives were aware of the investigation into Judge Genece Brinkley’s conduct since 2016. They argued that the existence of a probe raises questions about the judge’s ability to fairly preside over the case.

An FBI spokeswoman said the agency does not confirm or deny investigations. The judge had no comment.

Mill’s lawyers filed the motion days after the judge denied a request to free him in a court opinion in which she wrote he is “a danger to the community.”

The judge sentenced Mill last month to two to four years in prison for violating probation on a roughly decade-old gun and drug case. The ruling came after a prosecutor and a probation officer recommended that Mill, who’s 30 years old, not be jailed.
