Meek Mill’s Lawyer Files Motion to Get Judge, Who Reportedly Asked For Shout out On A Song, Off His Case

Just days after Meek Mill was sentenced to 2-4 years for violating probation, the rapper’s attorney called the judge’s intentions into question. Joe Tacopina accused the judge of handing down a heavy sentence because of her personal vendetta against the rapper, despite previous easy breaks.

The judge reportedly had a 10-year history with the rapper, stemming from his 2008 charges. Over the years, according to Tacopina, the judge had asked Meek to compromise his music career for her personal gain. He said the judge asked the rapper to change management and sign with one of her hometown friends.  He also said she asked for a personal shout-out in a Boyz II Men song remake, but Meek refused. Now, Tacopina believes she is using her power to hurt him.

As a result, the lawyer is filing a motion for the judge to take herself off the case. According to TMZ, Tacopina will be filing a complaint with the judicial conduct board to report the judge’s alleged acts. In addition, TMZ reports that the rapper will also be applying to Pennsylvania’s Board of Pardons, however, that process usually takes at least three years to complete.

Meanwhile, a petition, orchestrated by Governor Tom Wolf, to have the “unjust prison sentenced remedied” has now reached over 300,000 signatures. However, TMZ reports it may not be much help.
