Tory Lanez Found Guilty in Shooting of Megan Thee Stallion: Canadian Rapper Faces 22 Years in Prison and Possible Deportation

Tory Lanez
Canadian rapper and singer Tory Lanez faces up to 22 years in prison and deportation after being found guilty of three charges in the shooting of fellow musician Megan Thee Stallion.

He was convicted on all three counts against him pertaining to the July 2020 assault on Megan, which left her temporarily unable to walk and forced her to get surgery on both feet.

Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, had pleaded not guilty to assault with a semiautomatic firearm, carrying a loaded unregistered firearm in a vehicle and discharge of a firearm with gross negligence.

During the nine-day trial, the 30-year-old did not take the stand in his defense. It took the jury, made up of seven women and five men, one day to reach its conclusion, delivering the verdict Friday afternoon after deliberations had begun Thursday.

In a statement to CNN following the verdict, LA County DA George Gascón said Megan “showed incredible courage and vulnerability” during her testimony “despite repeated and grotesque attacks.”

You faced unjust and despicable scrutiny that no woman should ever face and you have been an inspiration to others across LA County and the nation,” he said, in reference to Megan.

“Women, especially Black women, are afraid to report crimes like assault and sexual violence because they are too often not believed. This trial, for the second time this month, highlighted the numerous ways that our society must do better for women,” Gascón added, referring to Harvey Weinstein being found guilty of three out of seven charges on Monday
Megan, 27, had accused Lanez of shooting her in the foot after she exited a vehicle they had been riding in following an argument.

"I want him to go to jail,” Megan Thee Stallion told Rolling Stone in a no-holds-barred interview published earlier this year. “I want him to go under the jail.”
