Meek Mill has been handed a two to four year prison term for probation violation and it looks like he’d have to wait for sometime before his bail petition is approved.
His initial bail application was rejected by Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley last week, who was the original judge in his probation case as well, while calling him a “danger to the community” and a flight risk. The rapper’s legal team is now working on an alternate resolution but the legal process will take time.
The Philly rapper is bouncing between several different jobs inside prison, reports TMZ. A prison rep revealed that Meek cleans the cell block & prison grounds and washes dishes. He also cooks food for fellow inmates. Meek Mill earns 19 cents per hour for the same, far from what he makes as a professional artist. The rep also says that he’s a model inmate who gets some perks due to good behavior.
Meanwhile, two major social justice organizations have put their focus on the judge who sent him away. #Cut50 and Color of Change are calling for an ethics investigation into Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley after discovering that she has failed to file accurate financial disclosure forms. According to them, Brinkley’s “Statement of Financial Interests” forms with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court from 2007 to 2016 show 44 instances where she did not disclose receiving rental income, her ownership interest in multiple businesses and her status as an officer of one of those businesses.
