Tory Lanez Gets Sentenced To 10 Years For Shooting Megan Thee Stallion

Tory Lanez was in court for his sentencing. The Canadian artist initially was facing up to 22 years and eight months in prison after being found guilty on all three counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle and discharging a firearm in a grossly negligent manner to cause bodily injury.

Today, The “Say It” singer was sentenced to 10 years in prison for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot, capping off three years of legal drama over the violent 2020 incident. The long sentence for Lanez (real name Daystar Peterson) comes after he was convicted in December on three felony counts over the incident, in which he shot at the feet of Megan (real name Megan Pete) during an argument after a pool party in the Hollywood Hills.

Handed down by Judge David Herriford, the sentence was much harsher than the probation sought by Lanez’s lawyers but less than the 13 years that prosecutors had requested. Neither Tory’s lawyers nor the DA’s office immediately returned a request for comment.

Before officially being sentenced, Judge Herriford was sent over 70 letters of support for Lanez, including one from Australian artist Iggy Azalea and another handwritten note from his six-year-old son, according to freelance court reporter Meghann Cuniff.

Once his time is served, Tory Lanez could also face deportation because he is a citizen of Canada.
