Tory Lanez Sentencing Date In Megan Thee Stallion Shooting Case Postponed By Judge

The Toronto rapper was supposed to be sentenced in February.

Tory Lanez will reportedly have to wait longer to find out the details of his sentence for being found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July 2020.

KTTV reports that a new potential sentencing date of April 10 was set during a hearing with Superior Court Judge David Herriford on Tuesday (February 28). He was originally supposed to be sentenced at the end of February.

Additionally, Tuesday’s hearing had the judge lifting a gag order that had blocked the Toronto rapper from speaking publicly about the case. His current lawyers are now expected to file an order for a new trial.
