Judge Who Sentenced Meek Mill Is Currently Under FBI Investigation

According to a report by Page Six, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has allegedly launched a probe into the Philadelphia judge presiding over the case, who sentenced the rapper to 2-4 years in prison for violating probation.

It's not just regular folks coming out to support him, but players on the Philadelphia Eagles as well.

Meek Mill is getting some high-powered support - Rick Ross and National Basketball Association legend Dr. J will lead a rally Monday afternoon in Philadelphia. "We need to be calling on local courts, judges, district attorneys, and state legislators to use their power to stop filling prisons with people who have committed minor probation and parole violations". Now with the news of the sentencing going viral, the judge faces greater effect as more information is revealed to the public.

"Sadly there are Black folks going through the same radicalized injustice (s) within the justice system that Meek Mill has experienced for over a decade EVERY SINGLE DAY", he tweeted.

Meek reportedly rejected Judge Brinkley's alleged suggestion because Mack is a convicted felon and Mill's probation prohibits associations with convicted felons.

But Mill's attorney, Joe Tacopina, accused Brinkley of having a "personal vendetta" against Mill after the rapper refused to grant her personal requests, including dropping his label to sign with a friend of hers and mentioning her name in a song. The hip hop star was sentenced to 2 to 4 years in prison for violating his probation.

Tacopina later added that Meek is "a strong kid" and his community will stop at nothing to ensure justice is served. The sentence has been criticized for its length and the credibility of claims he violated his probation.

Another way forward is filing an application for the state's Board of Pardons, a political avenue that Tacopina said they also plan to pursue. TMZ reported allegations that the judge tried to strong-arm Mill into leaving Roc Nation for music manager Charlie Mack. Jay-Z has also called out the sentencing as "unjust and heavy handed".

Meek worked with Mack early in his career.
