Prosecutors in Meek Mill's case want his original drug conviction to be vacated, and that would mean immediate release from jail, but, once again, the judge is refusing to bend.
Philly's D.A. Office made a rare move Monday morning in court, asking Judge Genece Brinkley to toss the 2008 conviction because it says prosecutors back then were fully aware Meek's arresting officer, Reginald Graham, was dirty and sat on the info.
If the conviction were tossed, that would mean Meek's probation violation would be voided also, and he would be released from the Pennsylvania prison where he's serving 2-4 years. However, Judge Brinkley did not sign off, and, instead, scheduled a hearing on the matter for June. That means Meek would sit in prison until then.
Meek's supporters outside the courthouse erupted in joy at news of the D.A.'s request, thinking he'd be released.
