BREAKING NEWS: Prosecutors Agree Meek Mill's Conviction Should Be Vacated

Meek Mill got some good news today in court.

(AllHipHop News) Meek Mill received the best news yet in his ongoing war for freedom.

Today during a status hearing, the Philadelphia D.A. told Judge Genece Brinkley the believe Meek's 2008 drug and gun conviction should be vacated and he should be granted a new trial.

Over the past month, Meek received a co-sign from the D.A. and the Governor after news broke, suggesting the arresting officer in Meek's original case had been named as part of a police corruption scandal in Philadelphia.

The cop had been accused of lying under oath in a number of cases, including Meek's.

Now, both the prosecutors in the case and Meek Mill's defense attorneys both agree that the rapper did not receive a fair trial.

The rapper's legal team is seeking to have the entire case overturned, but they still must get past Judge Genece Brinkley, who presides over Meek's case.

Despite having such overwhelming evidence, Judge Brinkley still refused to rule on the case and even barred Meek's attorney's from presenting their arguments that their client should be released immediately.

Meek's lawyer Brian McMonagle promised to appeal to a higher court to secure Meek's release immediately.

Meanwhile, thousands of supporters were on hand in Philadelphia today (April 16), to celebrate the release of rapper Meek Mill.

“I think God delivered me a job to helping people, helping minorities that come from these situations like myself,” Meek said of his post-release plans during an interview with Lester Holt.

“I say don’t show me no pity because this is my life. This is what I’ve been going through. And I think God put me in this position to be able to do a show with Lester Holt and open up eyes for other young black men," Meek said.

Protesters gathered in front of the Criminal Justice Center in Center City to support Meek's bid for freedom.
