The District Attorney’s office is pushing for the judge to hand down a harsher sentence for rapper Tory Lanez.
Lanez will be sentenced next month and is facing more than 22 years in prison. But prosecutors says he deserves a lengthy sentence because of several different factors because the “Defendant’s actions also demonstrated a high level of callousness.”
“As victim began to walk away from Defendant wearing only a bikini and no shoes, Defendant mocked Victim with ‘Dance Bitch’ as [he] opened fire in her direction. With no justifiable reason, Defendant fired not just one but up to five rounds in the direction of Victim in the middle of a residential neighborhood,” prosecutors wrote in the filing.
“The brazenness of Defendant’s conduct is alarming but the conscious disregard for the well-being and safety of all those around him signifies a high degree of indifference for human life.”
Lanez maintained his innocence but will have to spend some time in prison as a judge denied his motion for a new trial.
Lanez is slated to be sentenced June 13.
