A verdict has reportedly been reached in a high-profile case involving Daystar “Tory Lanez” Peterson, Megan “Meg Thee Stallion” Pete and Kelsey Nicole Harris.
Tory Lanez has pleaded not guilty to the following charges: carrying an unregistered firearm, negligent discharge of a firearm and assault with a semiautomatic firearm. The aforementioned charges put forth by the Los Angeles District Attorney carry a maximum penalty of more than two decades in prison. After nearly two weeks of trial and two days of deliberation, a jury has reached a verdict that will have a profound impact on all parties involved.
The charges against Daystar “Tory Lanez” Peterson date back to July 12, 2020. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Toronto native attended a social gathering at a Hollywood Hills home with Kylie Jenner, Megan “Meg Thee Stallion” Pete and Kelsey Nicole Harris. Upon exiting the gathering, an alleged dispute between Pete, Harris and Peterson began to escalate. Ultimately, the dispute became violent and police arrived shortly thereafter. Megan Thee Stallion has accused the Toronto musician of shooting her while Tory Lanez denies those accusations. Meanwhile, Harris has maintained that she did not harm either Pete or Peterson during the incident.
After several delays, trial began in mid-December and moved to jury deliberations on December 22, 2022. Since then, the public has been waiting patiently to learn what the outcome of the legal proceedings will be.
