Brinkley denied these charges in an April filing denying Mill's request for bail, writing "This court committed no error" in its sentencing, and rejected allegations that she had asked Meek Mill to record a version of "On Bended Knee" by Boys II Men. The 76ers, after being the laughingstock of the National Basketball Association for half a decade, is unstoppable of late, winning 16 straight games and making the playoffs for the first time in years. Freedom for Meek Mill would just be another sign the 76ers, who've aligned themselves with Mill's freedom, are on a roll.

Prosecutors in Meek Mill's case want his original drug conviction to be vacated, which would mean immediate freedom for the rapper - but, once again, the judge is refusing to bend.

Meek was on probation due to a 2008 arrest on charges of gun possession and assaulting police.

Mill was sentenced two to four years in prison last November for violating his probation on grounds of failing a drug test and violating a court order limiting his travel.

Correction: The statement was made by Assistant District Attorney Liam Riley.

Meanwhile, one of Meek's lawyers reportedly said the defense will file motions to secure his release "immediately".

Meek's supporters outside the courthouse erupted in joy at news of the D.A.'s request. thinking he'd be released. Another defense lawyer for Meek, Joe Tacopina, depressingly contextualized his client's continued incarceration in the wake of today's promising developments.

Despite Meek Mill's continued imprisonment, his legal team sounded optimistic. At the time, he was sentenced to eight months in prison and later paroled in 2009. "Our office also holds the position that we do not oppose Mr. Mill being released on bail while his appeals are being considered".

"They obviously have recognized and determined the criminal behavior of the arresting officer, which dates back prior to Meek's arrest", he said.
