Tory Lanez‘s legal team is back in court after he was charged for shooting Megan Thee Stallion, and just entered his plea … not guilty.
Tory’s attorney, Shawn Holley, appeared on his behalf Wednesday in L.A. County court to enter the plea in the case. Tory’s yet to go to court himself — his last appearance was over the phone.
As we’ve reported … the L.A. County D.A.’s Office hit him with 1 count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and 1 count of carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. The D.A. also alleges TL inflicted great bodily injury on MTS.
Tory’s already posted $190,000 bond and been ordered to stay away from Megan … and he’s defended himself on social media by saying the charges are not a conviction.
The rapper/singer faces up to 22 years and 8 months in prison, if convicted.
There’s already been tons of drama surrounding the case … with Megan claiming in a recent interview that Tory offered her money in exchange for her silence after he allegedly shot her in the foot. Tory’s attorney has denied the accusation.
Megan also flat-out accused Tory of shooting her and then Tory dropped a new album seemingly professing his innocence, denying he shot her and suggesting she’s a liar.
During Wednesday’s hearing, the state said it’s trying to decide whether they should go after Tory for possibly violating the protective order with his social media posts and song lyrics.
Tory’s next hearing is scheduled for Jan. 20.
