UPDATE: TMZ has a court transcript in with the Assistant DA in the case pointed out that Judge Brinkley allowed Meek Mill to associate with Charlie Mack, even through he’s a felon with a 1997 conviction on conspiracy possess cocaine with intent to distribute. Mill’s probation prohibits him from having contact with felons. This is the only exception to the condition that Brinkley has made.

Mill’s lawyer told TMZ about the exception, “Another first in my 26 years of practice. Just shocking.”

ORIGINAL: Meek Mill may be in luck with his probation case due to a new wrinkle in regards to the judge. The New york Post (via TMZ) reports that Judge Genece Brinkley, who Meek wants to recuse herself from his case, is being investigate by the FBI due to possible relationships she might have in Philadelphia. Brinkley sentenced Mill to 2-4 years in prison for two probation violations, a sentence that some have called too harsh.

Brinkley’s possible Philadelphia contacts include a local music mogul that she reportedly asked Mill to sign with. There may also be a “extortionate demand” involved. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom and followed Mill’s case ever since April of last year. The music mogul, Charlie Mack, allegedly told Mill he knew the judge and could help him, but Mack has denied the claim.

Brinkley allegedly once asked Meek to perform a remix of a Boyz II Men song and give her a shout-out. Meek’s lawyer claims that his refusal to do it is why she handed down the prison sentence. The rap community is solidly behind Meek, with Rick Ross and Dr. J taking part in a #FreeMeekMill rally on Monday.
