Tory Lanez Files A Fresh Appeal Concerning The 10-year Sentence For The Megan Thee Stallion Shooting Case

Tory Lanez and his team of attorneys have submitted yet another appeal to get his prison term for shooting Megan The Stallion reassessed.

A 103-page opening brief for the Canadian rapper/singer Daystar Peterson’s case, which is predicated on “Erroneous Admission of Evidence” and “Prosecutorial Misconduct,” was filed on Monday, February 26.

With the official sending of Lanez to serve his sentence in September, the high-profile shooting case came to an end. Judge David Herriford had sentenced him to ten years in prison the previous month, which was three years less than what the prosecution had requested.

He might have been deported to Canada after serving a maximum of 22 years and 8 months in prison; this deportation order would still be in effect after he is released from prison. It could take up to a year for the 31-year-old to receive a decision regarding his bond while his appeal is pending.

District Attorney Kathy Ta read aloud in court a harsh written statement prepared by Megan Thee Stallion shortly after the final ruling in 2023. In it, she attacked Tory for fabricating stories about the shooting and downplaying her “trauma” in her later songs. She claimed that as a result, she had “not experienced a single day of peace” following the shooting.
