As Tory Lanez gets ready to ask for a new trial, his sentence has been delayed.

The Toronto rapper made his first court appearance on Tuesday since being found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion.

The judge acknowledged his new attorney, David Kenner, who previously represented Suge Knight and Snoop Dogg, and agreed to postpone his sentencing until at least February 28.

Rolling Stone says that Kenner is getting ready to file a motion for a new trial and another to dissolve the protective order that prevents Lanez from talking about the case.

Kenner told reporters, “We look forward to litigating the motion for a new trial.” We have a lot of faith.

During his court appearance, Lanez wore an orange jail jumpsuit and a white rosary around his neck. He only spoke to confirm his new legal representation and thanked his backers, including his father and stepmother.

Kenner was Snoop Dogg’s lawyer during his murder trial in 1996, which ended in his acquittal. Additionally, he represented Suge Knight in a mistrial of a wrongful death suit brought in connection with Terry Carter’s death. George Mgdesyan previously represented Lanez, but he said he voluntarily stepped down to make room for Kenner.

After a two-week trial, Lanez was convicted on three counts on December 23: assault with a semiautomatic handgun, transporting a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and discharge of a firearm with gross negligence. When he is given a sentence, he could spend up to 22 years and eight months in prison and be deported.
