Ronda Dixon, an attorney who unsuccessfully tried to join Tory Lanez‘s legal team and argue for his release, is accusing his lawyers of not having the rapper’s best interests at heart.
She’s also arguing against his “unconstitutional confinement.” Additionally, she says he should receive bail, as he allegedly hasn’t seen sunlight in “four months.”

In a new report from Legal Affairs and Trials with Meghann Cuniff, reporter Meghann Cuniff she detailed her chat with Dixon, which went down just a day before it was decided that she would not serve as Lanez’s lawyer.
Dixon noted that Tory agreed to a substitution of counsel late last month, and she sought to replace attorney Matthew Barhoma to work alongside Lanez’s other lawyer, Jose Baez.
However, Dixon then went IN and proclaimed that she and Baez “have some serious issues” over his handling of Tory Lanez’s case.
In fact, she straight-up accused Baez and Barhoma of “taking advantage” of the “FeRRis WhEEL” artist.
“These guys are just taking advantage of [Lanez]. They’ve had him sign powers of attorneys. They’re acting on his behalf. … They’re not really asking him what he wants.”
Dixon went on to declare, “What he’s paid his attorneys so far is unreal. It’s unimaginable. They were only concerned about getting paid.” Oop!
Finally, she blasted the attorneys for trying to “cover up their own ineptitude,” though Barhoma reacted by declaring, “None of it is true.”
The Lawyer Hoped To Fight Against Tory’s “Unconstitutional” Confinement
However, the grievances didn’t end there, as Ronda Dixon also called out the “unconstitutional nature of [Tory’s] confinement.”
“Because Mr. Peterson has viable, meritorious post-conviction litigation, this court should award bail. The unconstitutional nature of his confinement provides ample justification. … This court should admit him bail within the court’s discretion.”
In support of this stance, Dixon explained how — while meeting with Tory Lanez in jail — he was “totally despondent.” She also recalled him saying he “wanted to go to state prison,” as he’d at least be able to socialize.
“His eyes were black. He was totally despondent. He told me he wanted to go to state prison. I said, ‘You want to go to state prison? Why?’ He said, ‘At least I’ll be able to go out in the yard and talk to people.’”
She further detailed how the terms of Lanez’s confinement are “doing something to his psyche.” Tory also noted that he “hadn’t seen daylight in four months.”
“He has to be shackled and he has to be accompanied by a sheriff and two deputies to move. He told me he hadn’t seen daylight in four months, that they didn’t take him to the day yard at all. That’s doing something to his psyche.”
Despite Ronda Dixon’s efforts, Judge David Herriford instead ruled that attorney Ed Welbourne would substitute for Matthew Barhoma.
Tory Lanez is slated to be sentenced on Aug. 7.
