Philadelphia Judge Who Sentenced Meek Mill to Prison Transferred to Civil Court Due to Growing Conce
The judge who sent Meek Mill to prison is now facing legal challenges of her own.
Judge Genece Brinkley was transferred to civil court earlier this year after growing concerns about her ethics and work management.
According to reports, her pending cases have been reassigned and reviewed by several attorneys and judges, who discovered a pattern of dubious decisions and actions, including the implementation of illegal sentences, allowing sentences to continue past their maximum duration, and failing to "quickly address cases remanded to her by higher courts."
Earlier this year, Brinkley filed a petition asking the transfer to be reserved, saying the reassignment "raises unwarranted suspicions about her integrity and performance."
She said, "The last place that such shenanigans can be allowed is in our courts where integrity must be the hallmark."
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court received the petition months after Brinkley accused two Black supervisory judges, Lucretia Clemons and Lisette Shirdan-Harris of Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas, of engaging in racial and gender discrimination.
Brinkley claimed the alleged discrimination was "based on race, age, and gender," but she would not go into further detail.
Since re-election in 2013, many have critiqued Brinkley's rulings as unjust and heavy-handed.
Those critics were further fueled by Meek Mill's two-four year prison sentence in 2017, which stemmed from a decade-old drug and gun conviction.
In addition, Brinkley was charged by Mill's legal team with having a personal "vendetta" against the Philadelphia rapper due to her supposed connections to Charlie Mack, his former manager. Brinkley reportedly pushed Mill to leave Roc Nation and go back to Mack and requested a shout-out in one of his songs from him. Both requests were denied.
