The statement stated, “I have never let a difficult time intimidate me, and I will never, never let any jail time eliminate me.” “I accepted responsibility for all spoken and private exchanges with the parties this week in court. I’m done now. I was not, under any circumstances, offering an apology for the charges I am being unfairly convicted of. I continue to hold the position that I will not apologise for anything I did not do.
The post continued, “I’ve faced adversity my whole life, and every time it looked like I’d lose, I came out on top. This is nothing but another moment where my back is against the wall, and I refuse to stop fighting till I come out victorious.”
Lanez ended his statement by thanking his fans for their support. He also promised to see everyone soon.
As previously reported by REVOLT, the Canadian talent was found guilty on three felony charges in December 2022 assault with a semiautomatic handgun, having a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and gross negligence in discharging said firearm. Lanez’s attorneys have assured that they will try to both appeal the verdict and get him released on bail during that process.
“We’re extremely disappointed that Tory did not get the sentence that we had certainly hoped for. I think the sentence handed down was incredibly harsh,” lead attorney Jose Baez said outside the courthouse (above). “I have seen vehicular homicide and other cases where there’s death, and the person still gets less than 10 years.[It’s] really just another example of someone being punished for their celebrity status and someone being utilized to set an example. He’s not an example. He’s a human being.”
