Recently, rapper Tory Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in prison for shooting well-known hip-hop star Megan Thee Stallion in July 2020. The news of this sentencing has been shocking to many, and has put an end to the three-year legal battle that was taking place. On Tuesday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Herriford handed down the sentence to Lanez, who was convicted of three firearm-related felonies in December.

The details of the incident have been difficult to comprehend and accept. Megan testified that Lanez had fired the gun at the back of her feet, and shouted at her to dance as she walked away from an SUV they had been riding when leaving a pool party at Kylie Jenner’s house. The rapper received surgery for the gunshot wounds, and has not had a moment of peace since the event occurred. Additionally, Lanez showed remorse for his actions, asking the Judge for mercy before his sentence was delivered.

While prosecutors were seeking a 13-year sentence, Lanez was eligible for up to 22 years under California law. This sentence was met by complete dismay for the rapper’s legal team, as “I have seen vehicular homicide and other cases where there’s death, and the defendant still gets less than ten years.” In accordance with the sentence, Lanez was given credit for the ten months he had already served since December.

The events of this incident are undeniably tragic, and have caused a great deal of suffering for both Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion. Furthermore, the sentence brings to attention the severity of gun-violence and the ripple effect it can have long-term. MeanThee Stallion has bravely addressed what occurred and shared her thoughts and in her statement that was read in court on Monday. “Everything I did wrong that night, I take full responsibility for” said Lanez, illustrating that he very much realizes the weight of this tragedy
