Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner asked Judge Genece Brinkley to vacate Meek Mill's 2007 gun and drug conviction on Monday morning, potentially leading to a new trial. Judge Brinkley also denied any members of Mill's legal team a chance for Mill to be released on bail.

Mill is now serving a two- to four-year prison sentence for violating his parole stemming from a gun and drugs charge back in 2008.

The Meek Mill incarceration scandal will continue for the time being. Another hearing was advised by her June.

Spokesman Ben Waxman explained that the prosecutor's office made a decision to the granting of a new trial "because of the questions regarding credibility of this arresting officer" The officer is one of the police officers that the prosecutor's office has been sought to keep the stand off in many cases across the town due of credibility concerns.

Meek Mill's lawyer has said that they will appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Former Officer Reginald Graham was revealed recently to have been on former DA Seth Williams' controversial "Do Not Call" list of 29 Philly police officers who city prosecutors were directed not to call to testify.

"The district attorney's office also has proven a great deal of integrity in granting our request a fresh study", McMonagle explained. DA also stated in open court that the prior DA was aware that Officer Graham was untrustworthy as far back as 2005, which was never disclosed to Meek's defense team.

Meek Mill's mother, grandmother and 6-year-old son, Papi, were on hand at the rally outside the courthouse, which erupted into cheers after the district attorney's announcement but went silent when it was learned Mill would remain behind bars for now. The group indicated that Judge Brinkley allegedly requested to re-record Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee" and demanded that Mill should switch his management team.

The judge defended herself this month, saying the court has "has impartially and without prejudice presided over numerous proceedings in this matter since 2008".
