Tory Lanez Failed To Reach Plea Deal In Megan Thee Stallion Shooting Case
Written by Rika C on November 4, 2021
Tory Lanez will have to take the stand and testify about the incident where he is alleged to have shot Megan Thee Stallion in both of her feet with a semiautomatic firearm last summer.
Attorneys for Tory Lanez failed to reach a beneficial compromise with prosecutors despite “meaningful discussions,” Rolling Stone reported on Wednesday. Lanez was seeking a plea deal, but there have been no disclosures about what was offered by prosecutors and why Lanez’s team did not agree. The case will go forward with Lanez scheduled to testify next month.
The felony charges could see the rapper facing up to 22 years in jail if convicted of the charges. Tory Lanez is being represented by Defense Counsel Shawn Holley, who appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday where a preliminary hearing date was set for December 14. During Wednesday’s session, Deputy District Attorney Kath Ta said that Lanez is expected to take the stand for about 90 minutes of testimony.
According to the District Attorney, the hearing is a precursor to deciding if the matter should go to trial.
