Robert Williams showed up in court today to make certain a case to get his conviction tossed out. Albeit a ruling wasn’t made today for a retrial, Van Jones, REFORM Alliance, CEO is feeling almost certain that Meek will recieve the justice he’s been deprived of by the end of the summer.
“This hearing was an extraordinary moment where you have attorneys on both sides saying that a new trial should go forward,” Van Jones told reporters. “The judges themselves seem convinced that the underlying facts are not at dispute: The cop that put Meek Mill in prison is completely not credible, number one. Number two, both sides of this case put forward multiple credible reasons that there should be a new trial. No judge disputed a single claim from either side,” he continued. “If a new trial is ordered, it is hard for us to imagine the District Attorney being able to move forward. We think we are three to six weeks away from a decision in this case that will right an injustice that has been on the books and ruining Meek Mill’s life.”
