Court Clerk Asked Meek Mill for Money During Probation Hearing [Details]

A court clerk has admitted to asking Meek Mill for money during his probation hearing.
The clerk, named Wanda Chavarria, admits to handing Mill a letter, which was obtained and published by TMZ. Chavarria asked Mill for money to help her son with tuition for Virginia Commonwealth University.
“This will probably be my son’s last semester at VCU if the tuition isn’t paid for this year and unfortunately with my bad credit, I am unable to secure a loan or co-sign a loan for my son,” Chavarria wrote. “Anything that you can do is very much appreciated.”
The letter ends with another plea for funds.
“Every little helps,” Chavarria adds. “Please donate what you can to keep him attending VCU.”
Chavarria said that she slipped Mill the note during a hearing, but Judge Genece Brinkley was unaware. She also said Mill didn’t donate any money, but her son was able to stay in school and will graduate in May.
Mill’s legal team filed a motion to remove Judge Brinkley from the case, claiming that she made multiple inappropriate requests throughout the years. An FBI probe was reportedly launched to look into the matter.
Mill was sentenced to two years in prison for violating the terms of his probation last year. His legal team recently confirmed that they are hoping to have his sentence overturned.
“We shouldn’t be flooding jails because of probation technicalities,” Mill’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina said. “In Philadelphia, people don’t even get two to four years for robbery, and he’s in there for a non-crime. It’s just ridiculous.”
The Philadelphia rapper is serving time in Chester State Correctional facility.
