Just one day after the #Justice4MeekMill rally took over the streets of Philadelphia, it's been revealed that Judge Genece Brinkley, who sentenced the rapper to 2-4 years in prison for probation violations, is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations, according to Page Six. Celebrities like JAY-Z and Kevin Hart called out the situation as both a miscarriage of justice and emblematic of the justice system's larger problems. Those charges, along with a failed drug test, violated his probation from a 2008 gun and drug case.

Separately, the New York Post reported on Monday that the Philadelphia judge who sentenced Meek, Genece Brinkley, is now the focus of an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley, who has presided over prosecutions of Mill for almost a decade, ignored recommendations from the prosecutor to not imprison him, The Associated Press reports. As we reported, we're told the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been in Judge Brinkley's courtroom for more than a year during the various hearings, monitoring her conduct.

Mill's attorney, Joe Tacopina, told Page Six the judge showed "enormous bias", including requesting that Mill sign with Philadelphia music figure Charlie Mack and drop Roc Nation, who was his current manager.

"The feds have an interest in the judge and [her] potential relationships". "I've spent more time talking to you than I ever talked to the judge".

Also, Meek's lawyers have moved to remove the judge from the case citing her allegedly inappropriate behavior and having a "vendetta" against the rapper. This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand. Meek's lawyer claims that his refusal to do it is why she handed down the prison sentence. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom and followed Mill's case ever since April of previous year.
