It is being reported that the Toronto rapper is discussing a plea deal despite his continuance of “not guilty” over the whole ordeal.
According to Rolling Stone, the rapper’s defense in the Megan Thee Stallion case is having “meaningful discussions” with prosecutors to reach a plea deal and avoid trial.
Assuring that if no deal is reached by December 3, a preliminary hearing will begin, Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Kathy Ta told the judge hearing the case on Thursday that “(Lanez’ defense and prosecutors are) in possible settlement discussions.”
Despite these meaningful discussions, it sounds as if Lanez is ultimately going to stick to his side of the story.
In a statement to Rolling Stone, Lanez’ defense attorney Shawn Holley said, “As in every case, the lawyers for the parties discuss the possibility of resolving the case. This case is no different. That said, our position as to what did and did not happen in this matter remains unchanged, and (Tory Lanez)’s plea of not guilty stands.”
Tory Lanez is facing charges that include felony assault with a semi-automatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. He has also caused legal issues surrounding multiple instances of disregarding the gag order placed in the case and violating his restraining order by coming within 100 yards of Megan Thee Stallion.
