Prosecutors Want Tory Lanez To Serve Maximum Sentence 20 Years
Written by Rika C on May 25, 2023
Tory Lanez is facing a lengthy sentence and could get the max if prosecutors in his Megan Thee Stallion’s assault case have their way.
Prosecutors have filed a motion outlining the “aggravating” factors the judge should consider ahead of the sentencing of Tory Lanez on June 13. The motion does not specify any amount of years Lanez, real name Daystar Peterson, should be sentenced for but rather urges that he deserves the maximum sentence based on the gravity of the offense and three aggravating factors that prove that the crime was unjustifiable. Snippets of the motion have been shared online, which paints Lanez as an aggressive person who was callous when he decided to fire not one but rounds of ammunition at Megan Thee Stallion and risking injury to innocent people who were in the vicinity where the shooting occurred.
The three factors the prosecutors have pointed out for the judge to consider are the rapper’s failure to exercise control and causing Megan bodily harm because of his callousness, using a semi-automatic firearm to commit the offense, and the victim, Megan’s vulnerability at the time when the rapper decided to fire the gun at her.
