Meek Mill has been granted an appellate court hearing in Philadelphia with the Superior Court, which is set to take place on July 16.
Meek’s lawyers will now have the chance to ask the Pennsylvania Superior Court to overturn the rapper’s original conviction, and not Judge Genece Brinkley, who was previously overseeing his case.
This comes as Meek’s arresting officer from 2007, Officer Reginald Graham was mixed up in corruption scandals and for falsely testifying in court, including on Meek’s case.
Meek has been having a hard time with his legal issues for years, with Judge Brinkley accused numerous times of discriminating against the Philadelphia rapper. Even though Graham was found to be corrupt, Judge Brinkley still denied Meek’s attempts to get a new trial and overturn the conviction in June 2018.
