It looks the outcry over Meek Mill’s wrongful sentencing has reportedly attracted the attention of the FBI. According to a report by Page Six, the FBI 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.
Meek, who’s currently sitting in solitary confinement at the moment, was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison last week despite the district attorney and Meek’s probation officer asking for no jail time. Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, claimed that the Judge wanted Meek to leave Hov’s Roc Nation and sign with Philly music figure Charlie Mack, whom Meek worked with early in his career. The judge also reportedly made a request that Meek should re-record Boyz II Men’s song “On Bended Knee” which he tributes to her and mentions her by name in the song.
A source told Page Six 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.’ ”
However Mack insisted he doesn’t know judge 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.”
This FBI report comes just hours after Rick Ross & hundreds of fans took to the streets of Philadelphia Monday to voice their displeasure with the harsh ruling.
