Meek Mill Denied Emergency Bail Motion But Dreamchasers Lawyer Gets Last Laugh: "This Is Good News"


Maybach Music Group's Meek Mill is still stuck behind bars after having an emergency bail motion denied by the Pennsylvania Superior Court. However, the Dreamchasers boss' lawyer believes there's a huge upside to the ruling.

According to Meek's lawyer, the court denied the bail motion but put more pressure on Judge Genece Brinkley to address his client's multiple post-sentencing appeals.

But in what the Philadelphia-born rapper's lawyer called a victory, the appeals court ordered Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley to rule on the bail petition Mill's lawyers filed two weeks ago - and explain her reasons "without further delay." "This is good news," said the lawyer, Peter Goldberger, hired because of his expertise in appellate law to challenge the two- to four-year prison term Brinkley imposed on Nov. 6. (Philly)

"Al Sharpton met with #MeekMill behind bars, and says the rapper told him he wanted to serve as a vessel of change for others who are wrongly imprisoned ... like he is now. Al appeared Monday alongside Meek's attorney, Joe Tacopina, to address his prison visit with the guy he promised to help, and he says Meek wants him to help shed a light on a broken criminal justice system. Al says Meek is also determined to be a voice for the voiceless. The civil rights leader explained that Meek appears determined, strong and without a trace of bitterness after being sentenced to prison for 2 to 4 years for violating his probation ... violations that Al says weren't pursued as crimes, but punished as such, regardless. He also talked about his time going to bat for Tupac Shakur in the '90s to help get him out of solitary confinement, explaining how he's the right guy to help Meek fight his case now.Sounds like Al's officially in Meek's corner." #TMZ
