As reported by Page Six, the FBI are looking into the judge who sentenced Meek Mill to two to four years in prison for violating parole. This news comes after a week of widespread criticism over the severity of Meek's sentence, culminating in a rally last night in the rapper's hometown of Philadelphia.
The past week has drawn a great deal of attention to the "enormous bias" of the judge - Genece Brinkley - who Meek's attorney - Joe Tacopina - has indicated acted from a personal vendetta. Tacopina claims that Brinkley repeatedly asked Meek to end his relations with Roc Nation and begin management with a personal acquaintance, something that is - needless to say - very out of line on a legal basis.
Page Six's source told the publication of the FBI's intentions that “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.”
