Meek Mill might be leaving jail soon... he's been granted post conviction hearing over possible corruption in his case

Meek Mill could be returning soon from jail where he is presently cooling off, after his lawyer drew a Judge's attention to possible corruption in his initial case.

In a new development, the rapper who is serving a 2 to 4 years jail term for violating his probation has been granted a post-conviction hearing.
Reports have it that Judge Genece Brinkley who sentenced him has granted him a post conviction hearing based on possible corruption during his initial case back in 2008.

This comes after Mill's attorneys filed a Post-Conviction Relief Act petition, calling into question his original arrest. It was suspected that Meek's original arrest in 2007 may have been compromised by corruption.
A report by the Philadelphia Inquirer claims that the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office maintained a secret list of suspect police officers who could not be considered credible witnesses for months, and Reginald Graham, the sole testifying officer during Meek's 2008 trial, was on the list.

Confirming the post-conviction, Meek's lawyer told Philly Voice: 

I mean, there were 800 cases that were dismissed or overturned upon discovery of this group of officers who had been committing crimes, lying about circumstances of arrests, and falsifying documents," his lawyer said. "One of the officers is the same one who not only arrested Meek, but made allegations that Meek has always denied. This is the only one that testified against Meek.
 The rapper is set to appear before a Judge on April 16, 2018 and if all goes well could be released soon.
