Higher Court Refuses to Release Meek Mill, Judge Ordered to Decide If He Gets Bail
There has been some progress in Meek Mill’s case. The judge has been ordered by higher court to set a bail hearing ASAP.
According to new court docs, obtained by TMZ, Meek tried to get a higher court to spring him from prison, where Judge Genece Brinkley sentenced him to 2 to 4 years after a probation violation.
The higher court refused to release Meek, but then schooled Judge Brinkley, saying she needed to get on the stick and decide Meek’s fate “without further delay.”
Meek’s lawyers and many others have criticized Judge Brinkley, saying she has an axe to grind and lashed out at Meek because he wouldn’t give her a shout-out in a song.
Meek’s rep, Jordan Siev, tells TMZ, “We’re pleased that the Superior Court took immediate action to direct the Court of Common Pleas to decide on the application for bail without further delay. We remain hopeful that Mr. Williams will be promptly released on bail.”
No word on when Judge Brinkley will hold the bail hearing.
It looks like Al Sharpton may have been able to do a little something…
