Tory Lanez Was Found Guilty By A Jury Of Shooting Megan Thee Stallion

The New York Times and Rolling Stone report that Tory Lanez has just been convicted of shooting Megan Thee Stallion. Due to felony allegations of a reckless firearm discharge, carrying a hidden weapon inside a moving vehicle, and assault with a semiautomatic handgun, he could spend more than 20 years in jail. The case’s sentencing hearing is scheduled on January 27, and Lanez could receive a sentence of up to 22 years and eight months in prison.

Tory Lanez’s trial got underway in December after he entered a not-guilty plea. Alexander Bott, a deputy district attorney for Los Angeles County, asserted during the opening statements that the rapper and singer shot Megan Thee Stallion and that Kelsey Harris, her former friend, and assistant, saw the incident from its prelude to its immediate aftermath. In addition, Bott provided evidence of Lanez’s guilt in the form of an apology text and voicemail.

George G. Mgdesyan, Lanez’s defense counsel, insisted that the argument only involved Harris and Megan. But, according to Rolling Stone, on December 14, when Harris entered the stand, the prosecution aired excerpts from a recorded interview she gave in September. In addition, George Gascón, the district attorney for Los Angeles County, released a statement after the verdict “highlighting the bravery” of Megan Thee Stallion.
