Prosecutors are asking a judge to sentence Tory Lanez to no less than 13 years in prison in the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion.
Prosecutors allege that anything less than 13 years would “endanger public safety” and “not be in the interest of justice.” They said a premature release could lead to “a campaign to humiliate and re-traumatize the victim.”
“The defendant actively invited harassment of the victim by spreading misinformation to his large following in an effort to galvanize the public against the victim and even the prosecution team without any regard to the dangers it posed,” prosecutors wrote. “The defendant has weaponized misinformation to his large following to such a degree that it has left a lasting traumatic impact on the victim.”
Lanez was convicted of all three charges against him but is awaiting sentencing. He appealed the verdict and failed. Prosecutors cited the rapper’s lack of remorse as another factor for the judge to consider.
