Philadelphia's District Attorney has called for a new trial and judge for rapper Meek Mill.
According to Larry Krasner's office, the former judge who sentenced Meek "abused its discretion" and has been biased against him. The office has also filed a brief questioning Common Pleas Court Judge Genece Brinkley's "impartiality."
"We are very pleased that the Philadelphia District Attorney's office has confirmed to the Superior Court that Meek is entitled to have his conviction vacated," Mill's attorney, Jordan Siev, said in a statement to ABC News. "The brief is also significant in that it marks the first time the DA has publicly outlined in writing that it supports Judge Brinkley's recusal based on her' appearance of partiality' and 'public perception of unfairness and bias.' "
Meek was sentenced by Brinkley to two to four years in prison in November 2017 after a two arrest that allegedly violated his probation from a 2008 gun and drug case. Neither arrest resulted in a conviction.
