The Pennsylvania Superior Court ruled on Wednesday that Meek Mill's controversial conviction on gun and drug charges should be vacated.
If the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office decides to pursue the charges again, Meek will get a new trial.
As part of the decision, the Pennsylvania Superior Court said, "We agree a new trial judge should be appointed upon remand. Williams’ right to be tried before an impartial judge is necessary in this case because the trial judge heard highly prejudicial testimony at the first trial, which was a bench trial, and made credibility determinations in favor of a now discredited witness and against Williams. Our decision today is consistent with prior rulings of this Court where a trial judge should be reassigned based on hearing highly prejudicial information in an earlier proceeding."
