Tory Lanez is currently being held in jail as he awaits sentencing in the Megan Thee Stallion Case. Overall, Tory is looking at a maximum sentence of 19 years in prison. However, it would appear as though the prosecution is trying to fight for 11 to 13 years. At this point, it remains to be seen how all of this will go. Tory and his legal team have put in multiple appeals. Although, the judge continues to uphold the guilty convictions. Now, Tory wants to add another judge to his legal team. Once again, the judge shot that down, according to legal reporter Meghann Cuniff.
As the story goes, Tory Lanez wants Ronda Renee Dixon to be on his team. In this role, she would work under Jose Baez, who is one of the most high-profile defense attorneys around. Unfortunately for Dixon, Baez is paying her no mind right now. This subsequently led to her telling Cuniff that she things Tory is being taken advantage of. Additionally, she says Tory looks "totally despondent" behind bars and that his eyes are completely black. She even went through the trouble of writing a motion to get Tory bail.
Tory Lanez Is Having A Bad Time
“Because Mr. Peterson has viable, meritorious post-conviction litigation, this court should award bail,” she wrote. “The unconstitutional nature of his confinement provides ample justification. Peterson’s conviction is not punishable by death. Because he will apply for probation, file an appeal, and pursue additional post-conviction remedies, this court should admit him bail within the court’s discretion.”
