Tory Lanez Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison for Shooting Megan Thee Stallion


Tory Lanez has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the feet.

Los Angeles prosecutors had asked a judge to give a 13-year sentence to the 31-year-old rapper-singer, whose legal name is Daystar Peterson. In a sentencing memorandum that along with the crimes for which he was convicted, the prosecutors mentioned that Tory had re-traumatized Megan with social media posts about the case that encouraged his more than 2 million followers to attack her.

Lawyers for Tory said that he should get only probation and be released from jail to enter a residential substance abuse program as the evidence that led to his conviction was “questionable at best.”

Tory was jailed after a Los Angeles jury in December found him guilty of three felonies: assault with a semiautomatic firearm, having a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle and discharging a firearm with gross negligence.

Megan wasn’t in attendance at the sentencing hearings but did submit a pre-written statement that prosecutors read in court on Monday afternoon. “I struggle with being present. After everything that occurred I cannot bring myself back to being in the same room with Tory,” Megan wrote. “He paid bloggers to disseminate false information, he treated my trauma like a joke when I could’ve been dead. He blamed the system, he blamed the press, and as of late he is using his childhood trauma to justify his actions.”
