Tory Lanez Slams Legal Officials
The singer took to Instagram to expose what he believes is a prejudice against him. “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.”
The post on IG was accompanied by a long text in white over a black background. The “It Doesn’t Matter” singer explained his court case and claimed to be pushing himself to “fight for my freedom.”
The Canadian Native was addressing LA County District Attorney George Gascón. He writes:
“Dear George Gascon, I write this message with the utmost humility, love, and respect for the remarkable stance you’ve taken regarding fighting for the justice of Black and Brown minorities.”
He continues to go through his case. “Today, I take a stance as an innocent Black Man, wrongfully convicted of a crime I DID not commit. I’ve watched 2 district attorneys from your office by the names of Kathy Ta and Alex Bott unlawfully misuse their authority to hide and suppress any exculpatory evidence that exonerates me or furthers my innocence. I was completely robbed and deprived of a fair trial.”
Tory Lanez Revealed His Next Court Date
While begging Gascón, he shared that his next day in court is May 8 after his trial has been pushed back for months. Tory is asking for a new trial accusing the original of being unsatisfactory.
“On May 8, my lawyers will argue a motion for a new trial. Not only do I owe it to myself to fight for my freedom, but I owe it to my six-year-old child, my family, my fans, and most importantly, the hundreds of thousands of Black and Hispanic minorities that cannot adequately fight for themselves.”
Tory lamented about his years-long entanglement with the court system. “For three years, the prosecution has manipulated a false narrative that has left me with no choice but to expose and make aware the practices, the behind-door deals, and the unjust system used to convict me illegally and countless other minorities. We elected you because of your outstanding eminence in making fair and correct judgments in the justice of people of color.”
Tory Lanez Pleads With George Gascón
The singer ended his lengthy letter by pleading with the District Attorney. “Mr. Gascon, I come to you today as a wrongfully convicted man, not asking for sympathy nor compassion, but for you to simply do what is fair and right by the laws of California and, most importantly, in the eyes of God.”
In a separate post, the “LUV” singer also shared a voicemail he left for Gascón pleading for a “fair trial.” He implored his followers to tell the DA how they felt and tagged him in the post.
“EVERYONE, please let @gasconforlada know that I deserve my freedom and a fair trial. If this INJUSTICE can happen to ME, it’s happening to so many more MINORITIES that don’t have the finances or VOICE to speak for you.”
