Tory Lanez mugshot goes viral, after recent conviction in Megan Thee Stallion
Tory Lanez newly mugshot has surfaced on social media — though it's unclear if it's official.
On Tuesday (January 10), Tory Lanez made his first appearance in court following his guilty verdict, he told a Los Angeles judge that he wants lawyers David Kenner and Matthew Barhoma to replace both his attorney during the trial, George Msdesyan, and Shawn Holley, the Canadian rapper’s original defense attorney who missed the trial due to a scheduling conflict, according to Rolling Stone.
Kenner, famous for serving as the attorney for Suge Knight and Death Row Records, also asked that the protective order prohibiting Tory from mentioning Megan or discussing details surrounding the shooting publicly be lifted.
“Your honor, most respectfully, there have been a number of other people connected with the case posting on social media and putting out statements. I would suggest to the court that the way the (protective order) was written, it’s a prior restraint on free speech,” Kenner argued. “I think it’s inappropriate for Mr. Peterson to be put in a position where he’s stopped from using his voice.” Kenner’s request would be denied, with the caveat that he could make his argument again at Lanez’s next hearing.
Lanez receiving a second trial in an attempt to exonerate himself, Kenner appeared strong in his belief that he and his superstar client have the burden of proof to do so. “We look forward to litigating the motion for new trial,” the 81-year-old told reporters following the hearing. “We are very confident.”
The Canadian rap star was found guilty in December of all of the charges against him, including felony negligent discharge of a firearm, assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and carrying a loaded and unregistered firearm. Tory now faces up to 22 years in prison, with a sentencing hearing set for January 27.
