Tory Lanez’s sentencing for his conviction in the Megan Thee Stallion assault case has been delayed yet again.
Earlier today Judge David Herriford set a new potential sentencing date for April 10, barring any further setbacks. The Tuesday hearing also saw Judge Herriford lift a gag order that had been preventing Lanez from speaking publicly about the case.
Over the past few months Tory has made several changes to the legal team representing him, including hiring Jose Baez, Casey Anthony’s former lawyer, to help with his appeal. Baez will be working alongside Matthew Barhom and David Kenner, who are most famously known for representing Suge Knight on his robbery charge that led to a probation sentence. Tory’s newly revamped legal team is now expected to file a motion for a new trial.
Good morning from Los Angeles, where Tory Lanez is due in court at 8:30. He won’t be sentenced for his three felony convictions for shooting Megan Thee Stallion. Instead, the sentencing will be delayed to give his new lawyers more time to prepare a motion for new trial. pic.twitter.com/ZzCcnE4x5k— Meghann Cuniff (@meghanncuniff) February 28, 2023
After an eight day trial in December of 2022, Tory was found guilty on multiple counts in connection to a 2020 shooting that left Megan Thee Stallion injured. The three counts included assault with a semiautomatic firearm, possession of a concealed, unregistered firearm and discharging a firearm with gross negligence.
