Meek Mill Files Appeal Petition Questioning Cop's Credibility

Meek Mill's mugshot

Meek Mill has been receiving support from all directions as he fights his current two-to-four year sentencing for violating his probation.

Moreover, included on the list is Officer Reginald V. Graham; the 2007 arresting officer in Meek's gun and drug charges case; that which he violated probation for a year ago and is now imprisoned for.

The documents show that former Philadelphia police officer Jerold Gibson said Graham lied about what happened during Meek's arrest.

Meek Mill's legal team filed a new petition today requesting the rapper's release from jail on bond, Billboard reports.

While the list has not been made public, sources for The Philadelphia Inquirer say it includes Graham. Officer Reginald Graham was among those listed in the article and now Mill's team is calling foul over his testimony as the sole witness during the rapper's 2008 trial.

The second officer, Jeffrey Walker, detailed multiple experiences with Graham before and after Mill's arrest. The report claimed that the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office kept a secret list of police officers who reportedly could not be considered credible witnesses in court. Gibson, a member of the same squad as Graham, provided a sworn affidavit where he says the "Dreams and Nightmares" artist never pointed a gun at the officer or anyone else. He also testified that a confidential informant later make another purchase from Mill, information that was used to obtain a warrant for the search of a home where Meek ultimately was arrested. The report said that Graham would regularly steal money during arrests and beat up suspects.

Meek Mill's attorney is trying to get the rapper's conviction overturned after the police officer who originally arrested him featured on a list of "tainted" cops compiled by the District Attorney.
