Federal Bureau of Investigation launches probe into judge who sent Meek Mill to jail

As reported by The New York Post, Meek's lawyer, Joe Tacopina claimed that Brinkely showed "bias" towards the rapper when she sentenced him to two to four years for violating the terms of his probation. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016, ' and Federal Bureau of Investigation source told the New York Post.

'The feds have an interest in the judge and her potential relationships. "Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016", says the source.

In the next couple of days, Tacopina said he plans to make a motion for Brinkley to "recuse" herself from the case and then file a motion for her to reconsider the sentence.

Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, was sentenced to two to four years in prison last week for violating probation in a almost decade-old gun and drug case. This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand.

TMZ has obtained a court transcript in which the Assistant D.A.in Meek's case reminded the judge that she made a big exception for Meek associating with Charlie Mack.

At the November 6 hearing during which Brinkley sentenced Mill, the veteran judge recounted nearly 10 years of court proceedings in which he had violated his probation, and she had sentenced him to short periods in jail and then had extended his probation.

Brinkley's office did not respond to a request for comment and instead referred CNN's request to Gabriel Roberts, a spokesman for the 1st Judicial District of Pennsylvania, which declined to comment as the matter is "subject to future litigation".

Soon after the ruling, JAY-Z, Kevin Hart, T.I., Angie Martinez, Rick Ross and other celebrities rallied in defense of Meek, who they believe was sentenced harshly considering his two charges: reckless driving in New York City and a misdemeanor assault charge in the St. Louis International Airport that was dropped. "And I don't do, like, you know, shout-outs to people in my songs".

Mack has denied such a claim to the Post.

Brinkley also apparently turned up to Meek's community service, which is unheard of.
