Tory Lanez's Sentencing Delayed Amid Plans to File Motion For New Trial - WhatsOnRap

Tory Lanez's sentencing has been pushed back to another date amid the embattled R&B star's plans to file a motion for a new trial in the Megan thee stallion case

Tory Lanez's sentence has been rescheduled because the accused R&B singer intends to submit a petition for a new trial in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting case.

Lanez was scheduled to show up at court on Tuesday (February 28) for a sentencing hearing following his guilty verdict on three felonies, but the sentencing will apparently be postponed to allow his legal team more time to prepare for a new trial, according to reporter Meghann Cuniff.

“Good morning from Los Angeles, where Tory Lanez is due in court at 8:30,” she wrote from outside the Los Angeles courthouse.

“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.”

Cuniff went on to say that the court was required for Tory to exercise his "waive time," and that it had to be done in person.

Lanez agreed “that his sentencing be delayed and that his lawyers need more time to prepare their new trial motion.”

Tory was seen in courtroom dressed in "orange prison garb" with a black wave hat. On April 10, a fresh trial motion will be considered to determine if the Canadian singer will be granted a new trial, but if the request is denied, he will be sentenced on the same day.

Lanez was convicted in the Megan Thee Stallion 2020 shooting case by a Los Angeles jury in December following an eight-day trial.
