Tory Lanez Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison For Megan Thee Stallion Shooting

Tory Lanez gets a decade in prison in Megan Thee Stallion case.

The final verdict in Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion case is finally here, and the Canadian artist is sentenced to 10 years in prison. “We both lost our mothers. We would sit there and drink, and drink until we got numb,” Tory Lanez said of Megan Thee Stallion. “I said some very immature things that I shouldn’t have said. I revealed some secrets I shouldn’t have revealed,” he added.

At the end of last year, Lanez was found guilty of all three felonies in the case of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in 2020. The trial went for eight days, and the three charges include felony assault with a semiautomatic, possession of a concealed, unregistered firearm and discharging a firearm with gross negligence. Initially, the Canadian artist was facing up to 22 years in prison after being found guilty.

“This wicked system stands judged before God almighty!” Lanez’s father yelled at the two prosecutors after found guilty. “You two are evil, wicked people. You know exactly what you did.”

Following the sentence, Lanez put out a statement on his social media. “To The Umbrellas, I have never let a hard time intimidate me. I will never never let no jail time eliminate me. Regardless of how they try to spin my words, I have always maintained my innocence and I always will.

This week in court I took responsibility for all verbal and intimate moments that I shared with the parties involved. … That’s it. In no way shape or form was I apologizing for the charges I’m being wrongfully convicted of. I remain on the stance that I refuse to apologize for something that I did not do.

I’ve faced adversity my whole life and every time it looked like I would lose, I came out on top. This is nothing but another moment where my back is against the wall and I refuse to stop fighting till I come out victorious.

Tough times don’t last, tough people do. To my family, friends and umbrellas thank you for your continued support. See you soon.”
