Tory Lanez has been released from house arrest restrictions as his felony assault shooting trial against Megan Thee Stallion gets underway in Los Angeles.
According to Rolling Stone‘s Nancy Dillon and confirmed by XXL, Lanez was given the green light to travel outside of his home so he can properly prepare for the case with his legal team.
“Mr. Peterson’s house arrest was lifted over the objections of our office,” a statement from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office reads.
The house arrest ruling was originally made by a Los Angeles judge in October in response to an altercation the Canadian singer had a month prior where he was involved in a fight with August Alsina in Chicago.
Tory Lanez’s attorney, Shawn Holley, didn’t agree with the judge’s ruling as “no charges had been filed in the Alsina case, and there were only allegations.”
The Megan-Tory trial kicked off on November 28 and the jury selection process is currently underway in Los Angeles. Opening arguments are expected to take place next Monday (December 12).
Judge David Herriford added: “I’m doing this mainly for the trial preparation aspect.”
