Shaneka Torres and her attorney are set to appear in Kent County 17th Circuit Court at 1:30 p.m. Friday, according to officials with Judge Paul Sullivan’s office.
Officials at Judge Sullivan’s office said Torres is requesting a new trial due to statements that the prosecution made during closing arguments regarding her decision not to testify.
Torres was found guilty March 25 of carrying a concealed weapon, intentionally discharging a weapon and a felony firearms charge. She was sentenced in April to between three and seven years behind bars.
On the morning of Feb. 10, 2014, she was a passenger in a vehicle that went through a McDonald’s drive-thru near 28th Street and Madison SE. She ordered a burger with bacon, but when she received her order it didn’t have bacon on it.
Officials say she then shot at the drive-thru window. No one was injured.
The defense argued that Torres fired her gun on accident.
