Tory Lanez will have to sit tight to find out the fate of his conviction for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in 2020.
As reported on NBC, sentencing for Tory is pushed back. He was originally slated to get sentenced in January, but it was met with constant delays. Tory’s legal team is pushing for a new trial, which is why sentencing was delayed.
According to the report, “his defense said they wanted to raise new issues and another court date was scheduled for next week, Deputy District Attorney Alexander Bott said.”
Last year, Tory was found guilty of three charges, felony negligent discharge of a firearm, assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and carrying a loaded and unregistered firearm. He was immediately taken to jail after to await sentencing.
His legal team is currently appealing the case. He hired a new team of lawyers since the one for his Megan Thee Stallion trial doesn’t handle appeals.
Tory’s new attorney, Jose Baez, wishes he would have joined the case a bit sooner as he sees “numerous errors” made. He said, “Unfortunately, this is the way it is, but he’s got me now and I’m certainly willing to give him everything I have; hopefully, we’ll get the best result possible for him.”
Baez recently showed support for his client with a simple word to his IG story, “justice.” Take a look:
Tory faces a maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months in prison if given the maximum sentence on each charge, served consecutively. He could also be deported to Canada following time served.
