Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley has denied Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill's, aka Robert Rimeek Williams, appeal for a new trial. The judge filed her decision on Monday, 6/25, one week from the appeal hearing on 6/18. Mill had appealed his 2008 conviction on drug and gun charges under the Post Conviction Relief Act claiming exculpatory evidence has become available. The defense pointed to the credibility of one of Mill's original arresting officers who also testified at trial. The former Philadelphia police officer's integrity has been called into question. The Philadelphia District Attorney's office also supported a new trial. Judge Brinkley, who has handled the case since the beginning, found that the defendant “failed to meet his burden of proof.” Defense lawyers plan to appeal Brinkley's decision to a higher court. Read Meek Mill's entire trial docket.
