Sentencing for Tory Lanez who was convicted on charges stemming from the 2020 shooting of Houston Hottie, Megan Thee Stallion was again delayed Tuesday.
A sentencing date was initially planned for Tuesday was delayed at the request of Lanez’s attorneys. Lanez has now been given until August 1 to submit a sentencing recommendation ahead of the new August 7 sentencing date.
He faces up to 22 years and 8 months in prison. A new California law would make Lanez’s sentence come in the “middle term” of the potential 22-year sentence, unless “circumstances in aggravation” were proven.
Prosecutors want him to face a longer sentence. Lanez has always denied the allegations.
In an audio recording posted to Instagram Lanez alleged that he “was completely robbed and deprived of a fair trial” and that he watched prosecutors “unlawfully misuse their authority to hide and suppress any and all exculpatory evidence that exonerates me and furthers my innocence.”
“… So, Mr. Gascón, I come to you today as a wrongfully convicted Black man, not asking for sympathy, nor compassion, but for you to simply do what is fair and right in the laws of California, and most importantly in the eyes of God,” he said in the recording.
