The Philadelphia court clerk who reportedly slipped Meek Mill a note during his last probation violation hearing asking for money to help pay her son’s college tuition is now out of a job.
According to TMZ, Wanda Chavarria has been fired for her brazen act, ending a near three-decade career in the Philadelphia court system.
In the alleged note obtained by TMZ, Chavarria pleads, “This will probably be my son’s last semester at VCU if the tuition isn’t paid for the year and unfortunately with my bad credit, I am unable to secure a loan or co-sign a loan for my son. Anything that you can do is very much appreciated.”
The clerk said Judge Brinkley — who sentenced the rapper to two to four years in prison — was not aware of the exchange.
“The Philadelphia courts have always prioritized fairness, impartiality, and the highest ethical standards,” Gabriel Roberts told Philly.com. “The courts fully expect all employees to conduct themselves in a principled and professional manner so as not to infringe upon the neutrality of the courtroom.”
While Meek may not have donated money to Chavarria, he did give $10,000 to Colin Kaepernick’s #10For10 challenge.
“When I mentioned this opportunity, (Meek) immediately wanted to be involved,” Kaepernick explained in a video detailing Meek’s generosity. Kaepernick says Mill’s donation to the Youth Services, Inc. – an organization that works with at-risk teens, children, and their families – comes from the rapper’s desire “to help uplift our communities so he matched my $10,000 for a total of $20,000.
