Tory Lanez was convicted in December 2022 after allegedly shooting and injuring Megan Thee Stallion.

Following the delays in sentencing, Tory Lanez — born Daystar Shemuel Shua Peterson — was formally sentenced to 10 years in prison without the possibility of parole for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July 2020.

"Women, especially Black women, are afraid to report crimes like assault because they are too often not believed," Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said after the sentencing. "I commend Megan Pete for her incredible bravery and vulnerability as she underwent months of probing investigation and court appearances where she had to relive her trauma, and the public scrutiny that followed."
