Attorneys for Tory Lanez, real name Daystar Peterson, have filed a motion for his release on bail pending the appeal of his sentence in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting case.
The request is the second motion submitted by his defense team since Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge David Herriford sentenced him to 10 years in August. The first motion was denied by the judge last month. The new update was announced by Legal Affairs & Trials reporter Meghan Cuniff.
“For the reasons presented, it is respectfully requested that this court exercise its discretion to permit Appellant Peterson’s release from custody on reasonable bail pending finality of his appeal,” attorney Crystal Morgan wrote in the court documents.
“If granted, bail will allow him to continue his employment while staying in the geographic Los Angeles area, so that he may continue to support and lead his family, and be present during these formidable years with his young son. Based upon this Motion, and the previously mitigating factors, which were presented at his sentencing hearing, Appellant Peterson’s request for bail pending appeal is warranted.”
The new motion was shared on X on October 10 by court reporter Meghan Cuniff. “The arguments are nearly identical to the motion Judge Herriford rejected at the Sept. 14 hearing in LA (the one where Lanez called me a googly eyed bitch), including the forgoing of any mention of the rehab pushed at sentencing,” she tweeted.
Tory Lanez is currently being housed at North Kern State Prison in Delano, California. Last month, Yo! Raps reported suggested that he was “scared for his life” inside the facility, which has seen multiple murders this year alone.
Lanez is trying to appeal his sentence. He denies shooting the rapper.
