Canadian Rapper Tory Lanez Receives 10-Year Prison Sentence for Shooting Megan Thee Stallion

Canadian rapper Tory Lanez has received a 10-year prison sentence for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot during an intoxicated argument. The sentence was pronounced by a judge in Los Angeles after it was revealed that Lanez had demanded Megan to “Dance’bitch” while firing shots at her on the road.

Lanez’s conviction in December for assault with a semi-automatic weapon, reckless discharge of a handgun, and possession of a loaded, unlicensed firearm led to his sentencing. The prosecutor emphasized that Lanez’s actions caused both physical and emotional harm to the “WAP” singer and requested a 13-year term.

Lanez’s defense sought a three-year prison term or probation, along with treatment for alcoholism. Judge David Herriford, during a lengthy sentencing session, mentioned receiving over 70 letters, including ones from Lanez’s celebrity acquaintances. Singer-songwriter Iggy Azalea and Lanez’s young child also submitted letters requesting a transformative rather than life-ruining sentence.

While the prosecution established aggravating factors such as weapon use and the victim’s vulnerability, the judge concluded that the offense didn’t demonstrate an exceptionally high level of cruelty or viciousness. Nonetheless, Lanez, who has been in custody since his conviction, was ordered to serve a 10-year prison term.

Recall that Tory Lanez was arrested for violating protective orders in Megan Thee Stallion’s case. Following a Los Angeles court’s ruling that he violated protective orders related to Megan Thee Stallion’s case, Canadian rapper Tory Lanez has been taken into police custody. Lanez was apprehended on April 5 after being charged with assault for shooting Megan Thee Stallion’s foot in 2020.

He had been prohibited from contacting her or discussing case details with external parties. On April 5, Lanez was arrested and appeared in a Los Angeles court for allegedly breaching the order by sharing case information on social media.
