Yesterday (February 28th) a judge set a new sentencing date for rapper Torey Lanez in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting case. According to HipHopDx via court reporter Meghann Cuniff, the new sentencing date is April 10th.
Cuniff tweeted, “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.”
Meanwhile, Judge David Herriford also lifted a gag order on the rapper and he can now speak publicly on the shooting case.
Lanez was spotted in court wearing “orange jail garb” and a black wave cap.
Lanez was found guilty by a Los Angeles jury in December after eight days of trial in the Megan Thee Stallion 2020 shooting case. The three felony charges included assault with a semiautomatic firearm, possession of a concealed, unregistered firearm and discharging a firearm with gross negligence. He faces up to 22 years and eight months in prison, as well as subsequent deportation to his native Canada.
