Tory Lanez Files New Appeal Over Megan Thee Stallion Shooting Ruling

by UNN Feed

Tory Lanez and his legal team have filed another appeal to have his prison sentence for shooting Megan The Stallion reviewed.

On Monday (February 26), the Canadian rapper/singer (real name Daystar Peterson) submitted a case based on “Erroneous Admission of Evidence” and “Prosecutorial Misconduct,” with an opening brief that spans 103 pages.

“The arguments largely match arguments made in his motion for new trial that Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge David Herriford rejected in May,” Law & Crime reporter Meghann Cuniff pointed out.

“The filing builds on a habeas petition filed in December with a declaration from Lanez’s driver that says he saw Lanez try to take a gun away from Megan’s friend Kelsey Harris before the shooting occurred, but it also says the driver did not see who fired the shots.”

On Tuesday (February 27), Cuniff took to Twitter/X and shared: “The most surprising thing about the brief is how quickly it was filed […] This fast turnaround could mean we have a decision from the Second District by the end of the year.”

In September, Lanez was officially sent to prison to serve his time, marking the conclusion of the high-profile shooting case. He was sentenced to a decade behind bars by Judge David Herriford the month before, which was three less than the prosecution were seeking.

He was facing a maximum of 22 years and eight months, as well as subsequent deportation to Canada (which will still be enforced once he’s released from prison). The 31-year-old is currently waiting for a ruling on his bond pending appeal, which could take up to a year.
