Meek Mill’s Arresting Officer On List Of Allegedly Corrupt Cops
Meek Mill’s legal team may have just acquired a small victory in his path to freedom.
Meek is currently serving time in a Pennsylvania prison for multiple alleged violations of his probation. The arresting officer, Reginald Graham, was found on a disclosed “Do Not Testify” list of 29 allegedly corrupt police officers. According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, Graham was being investigated by federal authorities for several alleged acts of corruption after an incident in 2013. Graham retired shortly thereafter these investigations launched.
“The release of the so-called ‘Do Not Testify’ list – which includes Meek’s arresting officer, Reginald Graham – supports everything in the motions filed by Meek and others wrongfully arrested by Officer Graham for post-conviction relief,” Tacopina said in a press release. “We are hopeful that this is the final step in the process to get Meek and the other defendants released on bail and to have their convictions overturned.”
“Meek filed a petition to have his original conviction overturned and to be released on bail while his application is considered by the court,” Tacopina said in a statement to HipHopDX. “Other defendants have also filed for similar relief based on the existence of the list, claiming violations of their rights and also seeking to have their convictions overturned. We are hopeful that this newly discovered evidence will result in the immediate release from prison of all of the people convicted based on the wrongful conduct of the officers at issue, and the overturning of their convictions.”
Meek Mill’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, is hopeful this finding will aid in Meek’s release from prison.
