FBI Investigates Judge Who Sentenced Meek Mill to Prison for Probation Violation

Eagles players Malcolm Jenkins, running back Wendell Smallwood, wide receiver Torrey Smith, cornerback Jalen Mills and defensive end Vinny Curr, along with Hall of Fame basketball player Julius Erving and rapper Rick Ross joined several hundred protesters in Center City on Monday for a rally supporting Meek Mill.

Supporters call for justice for imprisoned rapper Meek Mill during a rally outside the Criminal Justice Center on November 13, 2017.

The FBI has reportedly opened a probe into a judge who sentenced rapper Meek Mill to two to four years in prison after corruption accusations surfaced against the judge.

Gabe Roberts, a courts spokesman, said neither Brinkley nor the court system would comment because it's a matter subject to future litigation. Brinkley sent Mill, 30, to prison November 6.

On Thursday, the rapper reported to a state prison in Camp Hill, PA.

"He's holding up OK", said McMonagle, adding that Mill is in "protective custody" - in a single cell for 23 hours a day with one hour out for exercise.

'More than just a celebrity or rapper, Meek Mill has been a powerful voice in the community for our youth, ' the petition continues.

"Unfortunately, that defendant has really disappointed this court", she said. He was arrested earlier this year after getting into a fight.

Brinkley also reminded Mill of the night she actually tried to verify that he was feeding the homeless, part of the community service she ordered.

Tacopina told CNN on Monday that he plans to exhaust all legal avenues as well as political avenues to remedy what he called "an obvious injustice".

The unusual part of the motion filed Tuesday asked Brinkley to recuse, or disqualify herself, from involvement in Mill's case. "We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career".

The transcript of that private meeting was sealed at the request of Mill and DeSimone.

Sports Illustrated's The Crossover obtained Rubin's plea to Philadelphia judge Genece E. Brinkley.

Tacopina said he can't comment on a possible Federal Bureau of Investigation probe. I don't sing that stuff. Mill refused, and Brinkley replied, "Suit yourself".

He also claimed that the judge bizarrely asked Meek Mill to leave his current Roc Nation management to sign with her friend.

Page Six reports that the public's response to the harsh sentencing has caught the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is interested in the judge's relationships and a possible extortionate demand. However, Mack denies these claims.

Mack was among about 50 persons to offer support to Mill during an August 18, 2014, probation violation hearing before Brinkley. That move made her into a witness in the same case she was presiding over.
