Tory Lanez has written an open letter to the Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón, asking for a new trial. Lanez — who is facing up to 20 years in prison having been convicted of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in 2020, posted the letter to his Instagram feed on Friday (April 21st).
Lanez wrote, “Today I take a stance as an innocent Black Man wrongfully convicted of a crime I DID not commit.” The letter goes on to accuse two district attorneys in Gascón’s office of “unlawfully [misuing] their authority to hide and suppress any and all exculpatory evidence that exonerates me, or furthers my innocence.”
Lanez captioned the post, “Until my court date I’ll be posting the OUTRAGEOUS & DISGUSTING INJUSTICES used against me by the PROSECUTION to get the conviction they so DESPERATELY wanted, DESPITE the evidence they knew existed.”
The decision for a new trial will be decided on May 8th.
