A day after Pennsylvania Superior Court denied an appeal for bail for imprisoned rapper, Meek Mill, National Action Network founder and MSNBC personality Rev. Al Sharpton has written a letter of appeal to the highest judge in Philadelphia County court.
Meek Mill’s lawyers filed the appeal last week, asking that he be released on bail while he appeals the two- to four-year prison sentence for probation violations handed down last month by Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley.
In his letter to the court, Reverend Sharpton’s requesed that the judge in the case be removed.
“I write to you as someone with deep respect for the Judicial Process and as a true believer in fairness and equality in criminal justice matters,” Reverend Sharpton wrote to the Philadelphia County court.
“You may have read of my recent involvement with the case matters of Robert Rihmeek Williams (professional known as “Meek Mill”). He is currently serving a probation violation and was sentenced to a term of incarceration, over the objection of both the local prosecutor and the assigned probation officer, by Judge Genece Brinkley. You may also be aware that I have publically called for Judge Genece to be removed from Mr. Williams’ matter. This demand was generated by serious allegations of a conflict of interest with Mr. Williams.”
