Megan Thee Stallion Wants Tory Lanez Case To End, D.A. Claims

After multiple delays in Tory Lanez's sentencing and hearings to debate requests for a new trial, his shooting victim is tired of all the hassle. Moreover, the Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney, Alexander Bott, recently claimed to reporters outside of the courtroom that Megan Thee Stallion just wants this case to be over. Furthermore, legal reported Meghann Cuniff, who covered this case since its beginning, took to Twitter on Monday (April 17) with some updates. During a hearing, Superior Court Judge David Herriford yet again extended considerations for a new trial for Lanez.

Now, the timeline is that the defense team must provide their supplements to the motion by May 1. Then, prosecutors must respond by May 3 for final deliberations set for May 8. Not only that, but this should be especially contentious, as the prosecution believes said motion for retrial "lacks substance." After court proceedings resulted in another delay, Bott expressed belief in Tory Lanez's timely sentencing. In addition, the deputy D.A. also spoke to their wishes to end this case and do right by Megan Thee Stallion's wishes.

Megan Thee Stallion Wants Closure In Tory Lanez Case

"We want to make sure that Megan gets closure as quickly as possible," he expressed, according to Meghann's reporting. "She wants to put an end to this chapter of her life." Furthermore, this statement lines up with the prosecution rejecting the defense's motion for a new trial, which cited improper proceedings and evidence. The Houston MC's team stood by "overwhelming evidence" in the previous trial that showed "multiple eyewitnesses identifying Tory as the shooter, the gun used in the assault found at his feet, and his recorded apologies for the shooting."

Meanwhile, Tory Lanez remained in jail without bond since his December conviction for shooting Megan Thee Stallion. Unfortunately, the court of public opinion has been just as divided when it comes to this case. Although it took up a lot of time, energy, and pain over the last few years, hopefully these delays cease and all parties find peace soon. Regardless, stick around on HNHH for the latest news and updates on Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion.
