Canadian Rapper Tory Lanez Awaits Sentencing For Shooting US Rapper, Megan Thee Stallion

Canadian rapper Tory Lanez is awaiting sentencing after being convicted of shooting hip-hop star Megan Thee Stallion in the feet in 2020. The sentencing hearing was originally scheduled for yesterday, but it was delayed after Lanez’s defense team filed a motion for a new trial. The motion was denied, and the sentencing hearing is now set to continue today. Prosecutors have asked a judge to sentence Lanez to 13 years in prison, while his defense team is seeking probation.

Lanez was found guilty of one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, one count of carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle, and one count of felony assault. He faces a maximum sentence of 22 years and 8 months in prison.

Prosecutors argued that Lanez should be sentenced to the maximum sentence because he showed no remorse for his actions and continued to lie about the shooting even after he was convicted. They also said that Lanez’s actions had a significant impact on Megan Thee Stallion, who has suffered physical and emotional trauma as a result of the shooting.

Lanez’s defense team argued that he should be sentenced to probation because he has no prior criminal record and has been a productive member of society. They also said that Lanez was intoxicated at the time of the shooting and that he did not intend to hurt Megan Thee Stallion.

In addition to the criminal charges, Lanez is also facing a civil lawsuit from Megan Thee Stallion. She is seeking damages for pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost earnings. The civil trial is scheduled to begin in February 2024.
