MEEK MILL FACES NEW JUDGE FOR ’08 GUN CASE

Rapper Meek Mill has to wait a few more weeks to find out if his 2008 gun conviction gets tossed out or if he gets a new trial — but that’s all happening in front of a new judge, which has to be a huge relief for the rapper. Judge Leon Tucker is replacing the controversial Judge Genece Brinkley for Meek’s potential retrial, which was granted by a panel of judges in Pennsylvania Superior Court in July.5 As we reported … its unlikely prosecutors will refile the case and retry Meek. His attorney Joe Tacopina tells us, “While we had hoped that this matter would end today, we remain confident that justice will prevail in Meek’s case once and for all.”
