Mill was sentenced two to four years in prison last November for violating his probation on grounds of failing a drug test and violating a court order limiting his travel.

The city's DA believes Mill - who has controversially been behind bars since November due to a probation violation - deserves to have his case heard in court again, and that his original gun and drug charges from a 2008 arrest should be dismissed.

Mill's case has drawn plenty of media attention and the advocacy of multiple celebrities on Mill's behalf - a #FreeMeekMill campaign has had high-profile adherents since his incarceration, including 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin- who has become close with Mill. However, Judge Brinkley did not sign off, and, instead, scheduled a hearing on the matter for June.

Spokesman Ben Waxman explained that the prosecutor's office made a decision to the granting of a new trial "because of the questions regarding credibility of this arresting officer" The officer is one of the police officers that the prosecutor's office has been sought to keep the stand off in many cases across the town due of credibility concerns. In February, Meek's lawyers questioned the credibility of a police officer involved in the 2007. The DA also stated in open court that the prior DA was aware that Officer Graham was untrustworthy as far back as 2005, which was never disclosed to Meek's defense team.

The explicit material included evidence of Turner molesting the children, who were between the ages of 12 months and 2 1/2 years old at he time.

A police spokesman said that the office had no comment on the arresting officer allegations. A group of supporters are rallying outside of the courthouse and celebrated the announcement from the district attorney. "I love my dad very much". Mill's lawyers argue that the sentence is excessive, part of what they call judge's "personal vendetta". For now, the ball is in her court.
