Tory Lanez Requests New Trial in Megan Thee Stallion Sh00ting Case (VIDEO)



Canadian artiste, Tory Lanez seems to be fighting for his freedom as he has filed an appeal three months after he was found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion.

If you would recall, in December 2022, a Los Angeles jury found Tory guilty of discharging a firearm with gross negligence, assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and due to this, he faces up to twenty-two years in prison and deportation.

According to new court documents filed by Tory’s legal team, Jose Baez and Matthew Barhoma, they stated that their client’s conviction should be thrown out because “irrelevant evidence” was presented in the trial thereby citing several procedural errors.
The new motion also claims prosecutors created a biased view of Tory using additional social media content. For example, prosecutors reportedly submitted a shirtless photo of Lanez to the court, citing identification reasons.

But, Baez and Barhoma claim prosecutors “revealed their true motive” when they asked a witness in December about seeing “the big gun that Tory has tattooed at the center of his chest.”

As a result, Tory’s legal team believes prosecutors “painted the artiste as a gun-wielding career criminal” by referencing his tattoos and music lyrics. Baez and Barhoma are relying on a new California law, AB 2799, to argue the prosecution’s references which deprived Tory of due process safeguards.

Tory Lanez has since maintained his innocence throughout the trial and previously pleaded not guilty to the charges. He is however scheduled to be sentenced on April 10.
