Tory Lanez is enlisting an all-star group of lawyers as he prepares to appeal his guilty verdict from the Megan Thee Stallion shooting trial. Recently, it was announced that Lanez had hired Jose Baez to help him appeal his case. Baez is well known for representing Casey Anthony in her child murder case which resulted in a not-guilty verdict in 2011.
According to TMZ, Baez will work alongside other big-time lawyers such as David Kenner and Matthew Barhoma. Kenner served as Suge Knight and Snoop Dogg’s representation in the early ’90s, got the former hip-hop mogul probation for a robbery, and helped Snoop beat his infamous 1993 murder case.
Baez also represented Aaron Hernandez in the appeal of the murder of Odin Lloyd up until the former Patriot’s tight end’s suicide on April 19, 2017. On April 15, 2017, just a few days before his suicide, Hernandez was acquitted on all charges stemming from a double murder.
Lanez was found guilty of all three charges in relation to the Megan Thee Stallion shooting incident on December 23 of last year. After the verdict was reached, Lanez’s father took to outside of the courthouse where he vehemently denounced the verdict and blamed Jay-Z and Roc Nation for his son’s imprisonment.
Lanez’s father recently took to Instagram, saying that he and the rest of his family had forgiven Megan Thee Stallion.
