After a day and a half of deliberations at the end of a 10-day trial, the Los Angeles jury of seven women and five men convicted Lanez of three felonies: assault with a semi-automatic firearm, shooting a firearm in a grossly negligent manner and carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle.
The assault carries a penalty of up to nine years in jail, the conviction for negligently shooting a gun up to three years and the concealed gun count three years.
But because the jury also found that Lanez caused ‘great bodily injury’ – Megan had three bullet fragments surgically removed from her feet – the assault and negligent shooting felonies carry enhanced penalties that could add up to six years to his sentence.
The Canadian-born musician – whose real name is Daystar Peterson – is also facing possible deportation. He had pleaded not guilty to all three charges.
Guilty: On Friday, the jury ruled that Tory was guilty of all three charges: assault with a semi-automatic firearm, shooting a firearm in a grossly negligent manner and carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle’; Lanez seen arriving to court in LA on December 16
Past occurrence: In her testimony, Megan told the jury that the shooting had happen on July 12, 2020, after attending a pool party at the home of Kylie Jenner
In her emotional testimony last week, Megan told the jury that she and Lanez – with whom she’d been having a sexual relationship – had been to a pool party July 12, 2020 at the home of Kylie Jenner and were in his SUV in the Hollywood Hills with Megan’s assistant and best friend, Kelsey Harris, when an argument erupted.
Megan – real name Megan Pete – asked the driver to stop the car and she got out – which was when she said Lanez yelled ‘Dance b—ch’ and fired a gun five times at her, injuring her feet so seriously that she needed surgery.
She also testified that Lanez offered her and Harris a million dollars to keep quiet about the shooting. Lanez later apologized to her, saying he was drunk at the time of the shooting.
Shortly after the verdict, pandemonium broke out in the courtroom as rapper Tory Lanez was found guilty. The singer showed no emotion when the verdict was read.
But some his followers in the packed courtroom started jeering and a man identified as Lanez’ father pointed at the judge and jury, screaming, ‘This is wicked, you are evil. Wickedness of the highest order’.
And his stepmother yelled, ‘We love you baby,’ as he was led away in handcuffs to be held in custody till his sentencing which Judge David Herriford scheduled for January 27.
