Los Angeles-based criminal and court reporter Meghann Cuniff was on hand at Tory Lanez‘s court hearing in the request for a new trial. Presiding Judge David Herriford, denied the request, ripping apart each of the arguments that stated a new trial should be held.

According to Judge Herriford, there were no errors in the case, and even if the were, the effect would not be great enough to lead to a new trial.


Lanez’s legal team has filed a motion to disqualify the judge from the case, under the belief he couldn’t issue a ruling until a motion was resolved. That was not upheld.

Tory Lanez’s sentencing was delayed while the teamed prepared to appeal his conviction. Previously, Tory shared a message on his Instagram with the LA District Attorney demanding justice.

He wrote:

Until my court date I’ll be posting the OUTRAGEOUS & DISGUSTING INJUSTICES used against me by the PROSECUTION to get the conviction they so DESPERATELY wanted, DESPITE the evidence they knew existed.

Tory’s attorney, Jose Baez, posted to his Instagram Stories claiming DNA evidence will exonerate his client.

Baez wrote:

Today is National DNA day and we are happy to announce that Tory Lanez will be releasing information about the DNA in his case that gave false & misleading information to his jury: #freetorylanez.


It now appears sentencing will receive a date with the option for a new trial dismissed.
