If Tory Lanez had hired the well-known defense attorney Jose Baez during the trial, he might not be facing a 22-year prison sentence. That’s what Baez says, and he’s confident he can win an appeal.
Tory’s new high-powered lawyer, who is known for getting Casey Anthony off, came on “TMZ Live” on Tuesday and said he’s ready to go all out for Tory too, but, interestingly, he regrets that Tory didn’t call him for the trial.
As for how Tory is doing in jail while he waits to be sentenced, Baez says his client has never been convicted before, so he’s never been through anything like this, but he’s trying to adjust.
We told you last week that Lanez pulled out all the stops and hired David Kenner, Matthew Barhoma, and Baez to help him with his appeal.
Jose also represented Aaron Hernandez. When AH killed himself, he was in the middle of filing an appeal for Odin Lloyd’s murder conviction.
