Tory Lanez Files For Appeal In Megan Thee Stallion’s Shooting Conviction

Tory Lanez Has Filed To Appeal Megan Thee Stallion Shooting Conviction

Incarcerated rapper Tory Lanez, has filed an appeal to have his conviction overturned three months after being found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion.

The rapper’s lawyer has claimed that the rapper’s conviction should be thrown out due to “irrelevant evidence” presented in the trial, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.

Lanez will be sentenced next month, and is facing 22 years in prison for three felony firearms violations.

Tory’s criminal defence lawyer Jose Baez spoke up and said that Lanez’s conviction should be appealed after a shirtless picture of the rapper holding a gun to his chest was used to “underscore to the jury his client had a fondness for weapons.”

Lanez’s lawyer also alleged that it was a “reversible error” for prosectors to threaten to use the rapper’s song lyrics to the jury.

Additionally, his attorney alleges that it was wrong for the jury to have heard an 80-minute interview with Megan’s former BFF Kelsey Harris, who was in the vehicle with both rappers the night of the shooting.

Harris’ interview was reportedly harmful to Lanez’s case, despite her later recanting most of her statement. The Canadian rapper was convicted of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in her foot following a verbal altercation after leaving Kylie Jenner’s party in July 2020.
