The handing down of the sentence came after a prosecutor recommended that Mill not be imprisoned for the violations, saying that he has been clean since January and that he has grown as a person since his original crime. Attorney Joe Tacopino went on record with NY radio personality Angie Martinez where he claimed that Brinkley insisted that Meek Mill rework Boyz II Men's redemption seeking relationship ballad, " On Bended Knee" to include and shout out to her, and that she insisted that he leave his Roc Nation management deal to work with a Philadelphia based manager that Tacopino claims the judge is connected to. "I have seen this with parole officers messing with famous people for deals. a judge could be removed from the bench and it is a crime, [though] each state has different statutes for this".

Judge Brinkley of Philadelphia sentenced Meek 2-4 years behind bars on Monday (Nov. 6) for violating his probation by getting arrested twice earlier this year.

According to local newspaper website Philly.com, Judge Genece E. Brinkley told Meek: "I gave you break after break, and you basically just thumbed your nose at this court".
