Judge In Meek Mill Case Being Investigated by the FBI

Genece Brinkley, the judge who handed down Meek Mill’s 2-4 year prison sentence last week, is being investigated by the FBI, according to a report from the New York Post.

Brinkley is being investigated for a “possible extortionate demand,” as well as her connection to Philadelphia music industry notable Charlie Mack, a “local mogul,” who reportedly offered to assist Meek with his case. Mack has reportedly denied this allegation.

In an interview with Billboard last week, Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina uncovered several alleged incidents that would constitute judicial misconduct on behalf of Brinkley, including one in her chambers where she asked Meek to make a Boyz II Men remix dedicated to her. That request was reportedly made in front of Meek’s then-girlfriend, Nicki Minaj.

The FBI investigation could result in a shorter sentence for Meek, or possibly no jail time at all.

According to Tacopina, Brinkley also attempted to persuade Meek to sign with her associate, a local music manager. The interview wasn’t specific, but that could have been a reference to Mack, who’s been known to mingle with Philly stars like Will Smith and Empire’s Bryshere Gray.

News of the investigation into Brinkley comes less than 24 hours after the #RallyforMeek in Philadelphia Monday night drew thousands to the city’s Criminal Justice Center, including celebrity Meek supporters Rick Ross and Julius “Dr. J” Erving. A petition titled “Somebody Save Meek Mill” on has racked up nearly 360,000 signatures at the time of this writing, almost 160,000 above its original goal of 200,000.

The support and outrage are in full swing. Will justice follow?
