On Monday, Meek Mill request to be released on bail was denied by Judge Genece Brinkley, according to CBS Local. Meek’s bail request was reportedly shut down by the controversial judge because she views him as a “danger” to the community and flight risk. A post on Twitter from CBS’ Joe Holden reads, “Judge presiding over #MeekMill case DENIES his request for release on bail, saying he is a ‘danger’ to the community. Judge Genece Brinkley filed her order on Friday, courts just released it ten minutes ago.”
TMZ also reports Judge Brinkley suggested Meek may have used a Fast Flush detox capsule to pass his drug test. There is a new allegation from Meek Mill’s legal team that Judge Brinkley asked him to remake a Boyz II Men song and tried to persuade the rapper to sign with a friend of hers. His attorneys have since asked Judge Brinkley to recuse herself from the case but to no avail. Meek’s legal woes began in 2009 with gun and drug charges and he’s since racked up multiple probation violations over the past eight years.
