In another explosive turn of events in what has become the ongoing saga of Meek Mill’s fight against the Philadelphia judicial system, a report was released yesterday revealing possible corruption in his case.
The Philadelphia Inquirer published a list of 29 former Philadelphia police officers who have not only been accused of misconduct, but have been banned from testifying for prosecutors in various cases.
The reported misconduct varies widely and includes involvement in a prostitution ring, solicitation of a prostitute, excessive force allegations, assaults, several DUIs and, when it comes to Reginald Graham, “several alleged acts of corruption.”
For those who don’t know, Graham is the arresting officer from Meek Mill’s 2008 drug and gun case—the case for which he was sentenced to a five-year probation, and is now serving two-to-four years in prison for violating.
Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina has filed a motion to have Meek’s case dismissed upon accusing Graham of lying when he took Meek in a decade ago. He told TMZ, The release of the so-called ‘Do Not Testify’ list supports everything in the motions filed by Mill and others wrongfully arrested by Officer Graham for post-conviction relief.”
Meek’s quest for freedom has been playing out like a daytime drama with several plot twists. In November, a rally was held for Meek in which celebrities from Rick Ross and Macklemore to Dr. Julius Irving attended, alongside hundreds of fans and supporters, to demand that he be released. Entertainment legend and former Meek manager Charlie Mack was also present and called for the judge who sentenced Meek to recuse herself. The judge, Genece Brinkley, was accused by Meek’s legal team of extortion. They believe she advised Meek to fire his Roc Nation management team and rehire Charlie Mack. There was also a bizarre rumor that the judge wanted Meek to remake a Boyz II Men song and use her name in it. (A transcript of court documents could not refute these allegations.)
Late last year, Mack spoke exclusively to REVOLT TV and said he was not a friend of the judge and did not know her personally, contrary to erroneous reports in the media. He was recently a guest of N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN’s on Drink Champs and reiterated his stance, saying, “I don’t know if [the rumor]’s true or not because I wasn’t present.”
Watch ‘Drink Champs’ with Tony Rock and guest Charlie Mack tomorrow night at 10 p.m. ET on REVOLT TV.
