Meek Mill's most recent attempt to have his decade-old conviction overturned has been denied.
In a 47-page opinion, Common Pleas Court Judge Genece Brinkley denied Mill's request for a new trial by saying he did not meet his burden of proof in seeking to cast doubt on the evidence used to secure his arrest in 2007 and subsequent conviction.
“The District Attorney’s apparent lack of investigation did not bolster [Mill’s] claims or clarify for this Court the reasons for … their agreement to relief,” Brinkley wrote.
Mill's attorney, Joe Tacopina vowed to keep fighting.
“We continue to believe that this miscarriage of justice will be corrected upon further review, and that the public’s confidence in the impartiality of the judicial system in Pennsylvania will be restored.”
