Tory Lanez Files to Appeal Megan Thee Stallion Shooting Conviction

The rapper was found guilty on all counts in December, including felony weapons and assault charges

Tory Lanez has filed a motion seeking a new trial after being found guilty in December for shooting Megan Thee Stallion. He currently faces more than 20 years in prison for felony weapons and charges, TMZ and Rolling Stone report

Lanez’s attorney Jose Baez reportedly claims jurors were “erroneously allowed” to view an Instagram comment that appears to show Lanez writing that Megan’s former friend Kelsey Harris wasn’t the shooter. Lanez, who later claimed that Harris was responsible for the shooting, also filed a declaration from his content creator Joshua Farias claiming he was behind the social media comment.

Pitchfork has reached out to Megan Thee Stallion’s attorney for comment.
