Tory Lanez’s Life In Jail Revealed: Report
Tory Lanez was handed a 10-year sentence for the 2020 shooting of Megan Thee Stallion Friday (Aug. 11). Last December, Lanez (born Daystar Peterson) was found guilty of three charges: first-degree assault with a firearm, discharge of a firearm with gross negligence, and having a concealed firearm in a vehicle. The prosecution had previously asked for a 13-year sentence.
He has been in Los Angeles County jail since he was found guilty of the three charges mentioned above. As for his jail situation now, according to a report per TMZ, he is part of the administrative segregation unit. People are placed in that unit when they cannot be in the general public. Lanez will be in that unit because of his fame. The report states that, “he only gets two hours outside of his cell every day” and “only gets three hours of fresh air per week.” It is unclear when he will be moved to California state prison.
Megan Thee Stallion did not appear in court for the sentencing but a statement was read on her behalf.
“He not only shot me, he made a mockery of my trauma,” Megan wrote, per Law&Crime reporter Megan Cuniff. “He tried to position himself as a victim and set out to destroy my character and my soul.
“He lied to anyone that would listen and paid bloggers to disseminate false information about the case on social media. He released music videos and songs to damage my character and continue his crusade.”
She continued: “At first, he tried to deny the shooting ever happened. Then, he attempted to place the blame on my former best friend. In his tantrum of lies, he’s blamed the system, blamed the press and, as of late, he’s using his childhood trauma to shield himself and avoid culpability.”
“For once, the defendant must be forced to face the full consequences of his heinous actions and face justice,” she concluded.
Following the sentencing, Lanez issued an official statement.
