Popular rapper Tory Lanez has gotten his sentencing date in his case with Megan Thee Stallion put off until April 10, 2023, according to a post on Twitter earlier today. Megan reportedly brought Tory to court in 2020 for causing her bodily harm.
According to hotnewhiphop.com, Tory Lanez, whose given name is Daystar Shemuel Shua Peterson, was charged with three felonies, which include possession of a concealed and unregistered firearm, assault with a semi-automatic firearm, and negligent discharge of a firearm. It was reported that the rapper hired a new attorney by the name of Jose Baez to help with his appeal of the court’s verdict. He will work closely with his existing attorneys, Matthew Barhom and David Kenner.
In an attempt to obtain a retrial, the lawyers have caused delays in the sentencing of the rapper, which was originally scheduled for January 2023. Tory’s legal team was successful and was granted the right to appeal the verdict, causing the sentencing date to be pushed back to April of this year.
Tory Lanez was born on July 27, 1992, in Ontario, Canada, and rose to fame when he released the mixtape Conflicts of My Soul: The 416 Story in the years 2013 and 2015. This helped him gain the attention of Benny Blanco’s Mad Love Records, and he was later signed to them. He debuted his first studio album in 2016, which was entitled I Told You. It consisted of hits such as Luv and Say It. He later went ahead to release numerous albums, which helped him retain several awards and nominations throughout his career.
Tory Lanez is currently facing being imprisoned for over two decades and possible deportation if he and his attorneys are not successful in their appeal. In addition to postponing the sentencing date, the presiding judge, Herriford, has removed his restriction on Tory Lanez publicly discussing the case and Megan Thee Stallion.
