The evidence was in his corner, but the chips were stacked against him, and ultimately Meek Mill will not be getting the new trial he so obviously deserves.
The Philly rapper was in court on Tuesday arguing for a new trial due to the fact that his arresting officer is currently embroiled in a massive Philadelphia police corruption scandal. However, even though the DA agreed that Meek deserved a new trial, Judge Brinkley could not be swayed and she denied the “Dreamchasers” rapper a new trial, saying”:
“After an in-depth review of the record, court history, notes of testimony, and evidence submitted at the evidentiary hearing, this court hereby denies defendant’s petition for PCRA relief as defendant failed to meet his burden of proof.”
According to TMZ, this is the break down of Judge Brinkley’s decision:
In her ruling, the judge basically dismisses the notion the cop who arrested Meek, Officer Graham, is really dirty because the fellow officer who fingered him isn’t credible. In other words, Graham can’t be dirty because another dirty cop said he is. She also dismisses the fact Graham failed a polygraph test about pocketing money.
Meek was released on bail in April, pending the hearing for a new trial. With this unfortunate turn of events, Mill’s team is sure to appeal.
