Superior Court rejects Meek Mill bail request

Meek Mill‘s lawyers filed a motion to get him out of prison on bail, but the request was denied, per Philadelphia’s KYW radio station.

According to the AP, the rapper’s legal team asked that Pennsylvania Common Please Court Judge Genece Brinkley step down from the case, alleging she has made the case “inappropriately personal” because she had yet to rule on his post-sentence motions, therefore blocking Mill from appealing.

However, on Tuesday, court documents procured by Philadelphia’s KYW radio station revealed Pennsylvania Superior Court denied the 147-page emergency motion for bail, saying, “applications relating to bail…shall first be presented to the lower court.”

Mill’s lawyer could not immediately be reached for comment.

Earlier this month, the 30-year-old musician — born Robert Rihmeek Williams — was sentenced to two to four years in prison after violating the terms of his probation on a decade-old gun and drug charge by being arrested twice this year.

Mill entered the Pennsylvania State Correctional Institution on Nov. 8.
