Tory Lanez Pens Passionate Letter To District Attorney Claiming Unfair Trial
Written by Rika C on April 25, 2023
Tory Lanez is calling out the District Attorney’s office for alleged prosecutorial misconduct. The rapper blasted the D.A.’s office on Instagram in a lengthy post as he awaits sentencing.
The letter was directed at Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon and blasted two prosecutors whom Tory Lanez said misused their authority and suppressed valuable exculpatory evidence that exonerated him during the trial.
“Today I take a stance as an innocent Black Man, wrongfully convicted of a crime I DID not commit,” Tory Lanez wrote in a lengthy message. “I’ve watched 2 district attorneys from your office by the names of Kathy Ta and Alex Bott unlawfully misuse their authority to hide and suppress any and all exculpatory evidence that exonerates me or furthers my innocence. I was completely robbed and deprived of a fair trial.”
The Canadian artist shared that his lawyers are currently booting up to argue a motion for a new trial on May 8th. Tory Lanez was convicted back in December 2022, but he had successfully managed to delay his sentencing, which was originally set for January 2023, after filing a motion for a new trial.
