Report: FBI Launches Probe into Judge Who Sentenced Meek Mill to Prison
Many, especially Meek Mill’s attorney, feel that Meek Mill was unfairly sentenced by a judge who allegedly tried to get him to leave his current management at Roc-Nation.
Well this behavior, and other possibly shady dealings involving the judge, caught the eye of the FBI. Page Six reports that the FBI is looking into the judge, Genece Brinkley, and have been for some time now, going back to 2016.
Page Six writes:
Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina has publicly claimed Brinkley showed “enormous bias” against the star and acted “inappropriately” by repeatedly asking the rapper to drop his current management, Roc Nation, and sign with Philly music figure Charlie Mack, whom Meek worked with early in his career.
A source told us of the FBI interest in the case, “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.”
The source continued, “Mack had previously told Meek how he ‘knows the judge and he could help him with his case.’ ”
But Mack insisted he doesn’t know Brinkley: “I’ve spent more time talking to you than I ever talked to the judge. There is no conspiracy, Meek is an old friend of 30-plus years.”
Brinkley also is said to have asked Meek — in her private chambers in front of Meek’s then-girlfriend Nicki Minaj — to record a Boyz II Men song and give a positive shoutout to Brinkley in the lyrics. Mack manages the R&B group.
