"I gave you break after break, and you basically just thumbed your nose at this court", Brinkley, who has presided over the case since 2008, told Mill, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. Naturally, such big news has the hip-hop community feeling distraught, especially given the complicated circumstances surrounding Meek's verdict; while he did violate his probation, it's hard not to feel like the judge was making an example out of him, and thus, doling out "justice" with excessive force.
A Philly judge sentenced the popular rapper to 2 to 4 years in prison for violating probation in the almost decade-old case.
In his mugshot from the state prison in Graterford, Montgomery County, Mill is seen in a yellow prison outfit, staring straight at the camera. "We fully intend to right this awful wrong and bring him home", McMonagle said. Joe Tacopina told TMZ Monday that Judge Genece Brinkley has a personal vendetta against his client, because he wouldn't cover the song for her. Tacopina claims that during a meeting in Brinkley's chambers, the judge suggested that Meek remake "On Bended Knee" and include a shout-out to her.

"We've shown with our study that sheep have advanced face-recognition abilities, comparable with those of humans and monkeys". In a final test, the sheep had to choose between a picture of one of their handlers' faces and an unfamiliar face.
"It's some sort of an obsession", Tacopina said. He's served time in jail and on house arrest for violating probation and parole since then.
Mill was born and raised in Philadelphia, where he became a key figure in the local hip-hop scene before gaining national recognition. "She said, 'I'm serious.' He refused to do that", he said.
Brinkley has not commented on the whirlwind that began after she sentenced Mill to prison. He was also arrested this year in New York City for reckless driving. She also cited him and his managers for repeatedly scheduling concerts after her August 17 order barring performances outside Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties.
At one point in 2013, Brinkley ordered Mill to take etiquette lessons so he would know how to act in public and online after he complained in internet posts about the judge, the prosecutor, and his probation officer in less-than-flattering street slang.
