Tory Lanez writes open letter to LA District Attorney demanding new trial in Megan Thee Stallion shooting
Tory Lanez has shared an open letter in which he asks for a new trial after he was found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July 2020.The rapper’s lawyers Jose Baez and Matthew Barhoma filed a motion for a new trial last month, citing multiple grounds for re-trial in paperwork seen by Rolling Stone. Among the arguments is a claim that the judge in the trial, which wrapped last December, barred a fair trial by “erroneously” allowing jurors to view a social media post in which it was alleged that Thee Stallion’s now-estranged best friend Kelsey Harris was not the shooter.Now, Lanez has had his own say on the matter. The letter, addressed to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, makes several accusations against Deputy District Attorneys Kathy Ta and Alex Bott, including the allegation that they unlawfully misused their authority to “hide and suppress any and all exculpatory evidence that exonerates me, or furthers my innocence”.The motion Lanez’s lawyers filed made no reference to any notion of withholding evidence.A post shared by FARGO’S CRAZY LIFE (@torylanez)“Dear George Gascón, I write this message with the utmost humility, love and respect for the remarkable stance you’ve taken in regards to fighting for the justice of Black and Brown minorities,” the letter began.“Today I take a stance as an innocent Black man, wrongfully convicted of a crime I did NOT commit.
LA District Attorney says police investigation into Marilyn Manson is yet to report
In something of an unusual move, the LA County District Attorney George Gascón has posted a video message to Instagram providing an update on the police investigation into the allegations of sexual abuse that have been made against Marilyn Manson.The LA County Sheriff’s Department first announced that its Special Victims Unit was looking into abuse allegations against Manson – real name Brian Warner – back in February 2021.The investigation began after actor Evan Rachel Wood confirmed that, when she had previously spoken about an abusive former partner, she was talking about her relationship with the musician. Other women then subsequently came forward also accusing Warner of abuse, some of whom then filed lawsuits in relation to their allegations.When an earlier allegation of abuse was made against Warner in LA County in 2018 – with the musician accused of having held a woman captive for two days in 2011 – the DA’s office decided not to pursue a case against him, stating that the statute of limitations had expired and that there was an “absence of corroboration”.But the reason that the DA’s office has not taken any action this time round, Gascón says, is simply because it is still waiting for the LA Country Sheriff’s Department to submit any report stemming from its investigation.In the statement on Instagram, Gascón explains: “The Brian Warner matter is still under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and has not yet been submitted to our office”.“Please be assured that we are requesting regular updates on the status of the investigation”, he adds.
