According to a habeus corpus petition on Monday, Court of Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley was keeping Mill from being able to move forward in his post-sentencing options, making it so that he couldn't file an appeal.
Judge Brinkley has been criticized in this case, with many activists claiming that the sentencing was too harsh. He also was recently arrested two times - once in St. Louis for a fight in an airport where serious charges against him were later dropped and the other for reckless driving in New York City. Meek Mill is behind bars at the Chester State Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania.
The higher court refused to release Meek, but then schooled Judge Brinkley, saying she needed to get off the stick and give Meek his day in court "without further delay".More news: Court: DOD can't delay transgender enlistments beyond January 1
Prosecutors and Mill's probation officer recommended that he be spared prison time for the violations. He said Mill seemed "very strong, determined and not bitter" and Mill told him let people know this case is not about him, but about everyone.
The sentence sparked public outcry from a host of celebrities, including rapper and mogul Jay-Z and former National Football League quarterback and activist Colin Kaepernick.
