Rapper Tory Lanez sentenced to ten years in prison for assault on Megan Thee Stallion | English Movie News

Rapper Tory Lanez has just been sentenced to a decade in prison for the crime of shooting Megan Thee Stallion back in 2020. The prosecution case was centred around Tory spending 13 years in jail while lawyers for his defence were making a plea for his probation.

They were hoping that aspects like his childhood trauma coupled with alcohol abuse would be considered.

The rapper was already convicted in December last year on three counts — having an unregistered firearm in his vehicle, another one for assault with a semi automatic firearm while the third was about discharging the said firearm in an irresponsible and negligent manner.
The case was based on the incident that happened during a pool party in Hollywood back on July 12, 2020. Tory Lanez’s lawyers said that there was no real evidence and whatever had been produced by the prosecution was “questionable at best.” They had also argued that the rapper’s obvious lack of remorse should not play a role in the sentence that was to be handed out.
