PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Meek Mill’s judge has denied his lawyer’s requests to have him released on bail.

Judge Genece Brinkley said the court found Mill “in technical violation of his probation for the fifth time, and as result, revoked his probation and sentenced him to a term of 2 to 4 years state incarceration.”

Brinkley has been the subject of harsh criticism from Mill’s attorneys, who have asked her to recuse herself from the case. Mill’s legal team alleges that Brinkley “exceeded the judicial role by sometimes essentially acting as a prosecutor and, at other times, taking an unusual interest in, and trying to inject herself into, [Meek Mill’s] personal and professional life.”


“This ruling from Judge Genece Brinkley simply reaffirms the fact she has turned Meek Mill’s case into a personal vendetta,” Mill’s lawyer Joe Tacopina said in a statement on Monday.
