Tory Lanez Receives 10-Year Jail Term For Megan Thee Stallion Shooting!

Tory Lanez, a Canadian rapper, was sentenced to ten years for sh00ting fellow musician Megan Thee Stallion.

Lanez shot Grammy winner Megan Thee Stallion in the feet after a dispute at a party in 2020. He was convicted of three gun-related offenses in December and has been imprisoned since.

Megan Thee Stallion needed surgery to remove bullet fragments from her foot after the sh00ting, which polarized the music industry.

After the verdict, LA District Attorney George Gascón stated that her celebrity “has brought an important spotlight on the issue of violence against women.” The incident occurred on the way home from a pool party at reality star Kylie Jenner’s Hollywood estate.

Prosecutors had requested a 13-year prison term from the judge. Lanez, 31, was sentenced to life in prison for shooting a “vulnerable victim” on a peaceful residential street and pursuing a “campaign to humiliate and re-traumatize her” after the crime.

Lanez, actual name Daystar Peterson, has achieved seven top ten albums in the United States in the last seven years. He was found guilty of three felonies: assault with a semi-automatic firearm, loaded, unlicensed gun in a vehicle, and recklessly discharging a firearm.

His attorneys claimed he should be given probation and time in a drug treatment program. It is unknown whether Lanez will be deported to Canada.

Jose Baez stated that his client intended to file an appeal owing to “significant issues” with the trial.

He noted a lack of DNA evidence against Lanez concerning the sh00ting outside court on Tuesday, saying that the rapper’s DNA was not detected on the gun used. Mr. Baez went on to say that he did not believe Lanez was given a fair trial.

‘I did wrong that Night’

Before the sentencing, Lanez read a statement to the court. While he has maintained his innocence throughout the trial and since, he claimed on Tuesday that he accepted “responsibility” for what “I did wrong that night,” without specifying what he meant.

“There’s been this misconception about me being this monster or not having remorse, and that’s just not true,” the actress told the court, according to the Press Association.

“It was a night when everyone was inebriated… I made some extremely immature remarks. If I could change the course of events, I would, but I can’t.

“However, to believe that I am a callous individual is incorrect. My friend was the victim… [and] she is still my friend to this day. “I did wrong that night, and I take full responsibility and culpability for it.”

‘I will never be the same

The incident occurred on July 12, 2020, when the pair left Jenner’s residence in an SUV with two other persons. Megan, real name Megan Pete, told the court that she and Lanez disagreed about their prior sexual relationship. The argument became heated, and the two insulted each other’s careers.

She claimed that when she begged to be allowed out of the vehicle, Lanez began firing at the ground and yelled at her to “dance.”

Lanez’s defense contended throughout the trial that Megan’s friend Kelsey Harris, who was in the vehicle, may have shot her buddy out of jealousy. She flatly rejected it.

In a victim impact statement delivered in court on Monday, Megan stated, “Since I was viciously shot by the defendant [Lanez], I have not experienced a single day of peace.” “I’m slowly but steadily healing and regaining my strength, but I’ll never be the same.”

Hip-Hop Stars Take Sides

Lanez’s father, who spoke eloquently about the impact of his son’s mother’s death when he was 11, and a prison chaplain, who said Lanez had been leading daily prayer groups, were among others who testified on Monday.

The judge stated that he had received over 70 letters in support of Lanez from family and friends, including rapper Iggy Azalea, who asked for a sentence that was “transformative, not life-destroying.”

Following the shooting, numerous well-known hip-hop figures took sides in the debate over who was speaking the truth. 50 Cent apologized to Megan for implying she lied about being shot by Lanez, and Drake appeared to mention the shooting in his lyrics.

After the sentencing, Tanishia Wright, the District Attorney’s office’s head of victim services, told reporters, “Violence against black women and girls is a long-standing national epidemic that has long been overlooked and under-reported.”

“Women of color, more often than not, do not come forward to report victimization for fear of not being believed.”
