Written by Randy C on January 11, 2023
After being convicted in the shooting of rap star Megan Thee Stallion, Tory Lanez had his sentencing rescheduled by his new defense team, who are seeking a new trial for the troubled Canadian rapper.
L.A. legal reporter Meghann Cuniff announced that Lanez’s sentencing had been rescheduled to February 28 from its original January 27 sentencing date.
Tory’s new lawyer David Kenner said, “I look forward to litigating the motion for new trial.” Kenner noted that he’s set on the issues he’ll be raising “but I’m not prepared to share them at this point. […] We are very confident though.”
David Kenner gained fame and notoriety in the early 90s as the primary attorney for Suge Knight and Death Row Records, scoring a victory in the 1993 murder acquittal for Snoop Dogg and his bodyguard, prompting the release of “Murder Was The Case.”
