More than 100000 people petition Pennsylvania to free Meek Mill

Judge Genece Brinkley during an appearance on Philadelphia local television.

After news of the sentencing was released, many celebrities, including JAY-Z, voiced their support for Mill while criticizing the legal system.

Imagine it: that "Okay, suit yourself" is what sealed Meek's two-to-four-year prison sentence, if his attorney is to be believed.

In his mugshot from the state prison in Graterford, Montgomery County, Mill is seen in a yellow prison outfit, staring straight at the camera.

Also, a petition has been started to have the judge on his case disbarred.

And New York City lawyer Joe Tacopina, who said he was one of Mill's attorneys, in interviews with news organizations accused Brinkley of having a vendetta against Mill.

"It's some sort of an obsession", Tacopina said. In 2016, Mill was placed under 90 days of house arrest for violating probation due to unapproved travel.

Hollywood is not the only business we're this happens, and to the casualties of this behavior- you are not alone. Ironically, he represents Dustin Hoffman and Brett Ratner who have also been accused of sexual misconduct.

The transcript of that closed proceeding also was sealed at Mill's and DeSimone's requests.

When the cameraman informs T.I. about the whole "Boyz-2-Men" incident (in which the judge reportedly asked Meek to cover Boyz-2-Men, shouting her out in the process), he replies with incredulity, chuckling at the ridiculousness of it all.

But Brinkley says she's been trying to help Mill for about a decade and that he just does whatever he wants.

After Monday's hearing and sentencing, McMonagle said he meant to appeal the sentence.

And Mill - whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams - was arrested again in NY back in August for recklessly driving his motorcycle. Maybe she's jealous of him. "I'm asking for mercy".

"In regards to the harsh, undeserving sentencing of Robert Rihmeek Williams (Meek Mill), I felt the need to create a petition to reevaluate the charges", the petition states.

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.
