In the days following Lanez’s conviction, many called to appeal Lanez’s guilty verdict, most notably his family, claiming in a petition that the trial was a “miscarriage of justice” and that the prosecution “did not prove that Lanez undoubtedly committed any crime.”


Even though Lanez has changed Lawyers, I don’t know if it will lead to a change in his legal fate. In October 2018, Kenner’s former client Suge Knight was sentenced to 28 years in prison for a hit-and-run on the set of the 2015 film Straight Outta Compton. Kenner represented Knight during his civil trial last year over allegations that he negligently killed the victim in the hit-and-run, but he did not represent him when he was convicted or sentenced in the criminal trial, according to Rolling Stone.

Lanez’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 27, according to the Superior Court of California. He currently faces a maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months in prison, not sure a new lawyer will change that.
