Tory to file for a new trial
Tory Lanez's sentencing has been postponed in order to allow his legal team to file for a new trial. The R&B artist was slated to appear in court Tuesday (February 28) for the sentencing, which never happened, per legal reporter Meghann Cuniff. The sentencing is now set for April 10.
Another reason for the delay is to give time for prosecutors and Tory's defense to discuss the right sentence. However, Tory's appearance at the hearing was necessary for his “waive time” and he approved “that his sentencing be delayed and that his lawyers need more time to prepare their new trial motion.”
