Philadelphia DA says Meek Mill conviction should be tossed

Meek Mill

The 76ers, after being the laughingstock of the National Basketball Association for half a decade, is unstoppable of late, winning 16 straight games and making the playoffs for the first time in years. Freedom for Meek Mill would just be another sign the 76ers, who've aligned themselves with Mill's freedom, are on a roll.

Shortly after Brinkley sentenced Meek to prison, the rapper's legal team requested her recusal.

But the judge in the case, Genece Brinkley, refused to toss the charges and instead scheduled another hearing for June 18.

The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said in court Monday that the Philly rapper's gun- and drug-related convictions from 2008 should be overturned, after the credibility of Mill's arresting officer was recently impugned.

"Night Court" star Harry Anderson dies at 65
Fame came in the 1980s when he starred in NBC's Night Court , a comedy depicting a busy night time courtroom in Manhattan. He starred in several other TV specials and shows , including roles on " Saturday Night Live " and "Cheers".

Many have argued Mill's latest incarceration is the result of a failed justice system.

Meek was on probation due to a 2008 arrest on charges of gun possession and assaulting police. Brian McMonagle said his team was "elated" by the D.A.'s office decision to support their argument that the arrest was questionable, and that Judge Brinkley's decision not to would be a "reprehensible crime". The team previously revealed its intentions to file for Mill's release with the state supreme court. At the time, he was sentenced to eight months in prison and later paroled in 2009. Riley, who admitted a retrial might be best today, is reportedly reviewing 56 cases associated with Meek's arresting officer to verify if other convictions were improperly achieved.

"The district attorney's office also has proven a great deal of integrity in granting our request a fresh study", McMonagle explained.

If the present case against Mill is vacated, as the DA's office is recommending, there is no guarantee that prosecutors would pursue a new trial against Mill. In light of these significant developments, we are stunned that Judge Brinkley continues to adhere to her view that Meek is not entitled to immediate release on bail.
