Meek Mill's legal problems continue.
Meek Mill's porous legal situation took another hit yesterday (November 28th), after his request for an emergency bail hearing was denied. As per the Associated Press, Mill's defense team brought the request to the Pennsylvania Superior Court, thinking that this would yield faster, more positive action than dealing with the mechanisms of pushing such a request through in a lower court.
Meek’s attorneys have also claimed that they were forced to seek out higher-level help after Judge Genece Brinkley, the woman who originally presided over Meek's case and sentenced him to 2-4 years in prison, refused to respond to the multiple appeals that were submitted. The rapper has been serving time since early November after violating his parole by exhibiting reckless endangerment in New York while driving a motorcycle through the city streets. There's no doubt that this sentence has been met with major public outcry, but as it stands right now, Meek won't be stepping out from behind bars anytime soon
There is still some hope that this case could turn in Meek's favor in the next little while, based on what we reported not long ago. Though the higher court's denial of the emergency bail must sting, that doesn't mean that Judge Brinkley is getting off easily either. The Superior Court has also taken issue with her, delivering the ultimatum that she must deliver a verdict on Meek's bail hearing "without further delay." Meek's representative Jordian Siev issued a statement, which said: "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."
With that said, the prospect of a bail hearing might be stronger than ever before but, to some, with the justice system as broken as it is, being optimistic about the situation still feels like a long shot. However, after both Colin Kaepernick and Al Sharpton confirming that Meek Mill continues to be in good spirits about his future, hopefully we can see the rapper free from this legal saga once and for all.
