Adjust Comment Print

The Ima Boss hitmaker, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, recently began serving his sentence for two-to-four years behind bars after violating his probation relating to a 2008 drug and gun bust.

She obeyed and on Friday (01Dec17), denied Meek's motion for freedom, branding him a "flight risk" and a "danger to the community".

Brinkley also said Williams was a "danger to himself due to his continuous drug use".

A reported investigation by the FBI into Judge Brinkley's conduct is ongoing.

McMonagle did not return a call for comment, and a spokesman for Philadelphia's First Judicial District declined to comment.

Accepting the award, Gomez said that she was grateful for all the support she has received throughout her career. Of the honor Selena said , "The idea of Woman of the Year made me a little uncomfortable".

And Brinkley's prison sentence has triggered fury among Mill's supporters - including the Rev. Al Sharpton and JAY-Z - saying Mill exemplified the abuse and overreach that has sent many to jail on minor violations just as they were trying to get their lives back on track after a prison stint.

Meek's lawyer went to court and asked for bail pending an appeal on his 2 to 4 year prison sentence for a probation violation.

"You have public outrage, but you don't have public outrage because people like his music", Tacopina told VIBE in a previous interview. TMZ reported that Judge Brinkley had a beef with Mill because he wouldn't do a shout-out to her in the middle of a suggested Boyz II Men remake.

Those allegations were made a part of the official record November 14 when McMonagle, who previously represented Bill Cosby, filed a motion asking Brinkley to recuse. Lawyers also took issue with the tactic of an attorney broadcasting dissatisfaction with a judge in the national spotlight.

Judge Genece Brinkley was ordered to act "without further delay" on the bail request, which was filed two weeks ago.
