Last month, Tory Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in prison. The case surrounds Megan Thee Stallion getting shot in the foot back in 2020. The rapper had been awaiting his sentencing from behind bars for around seven months. As of now, he’s in the process of appealing his sentence, appearing in court earlier this week to request bail. The sentencing managed to stir up a lot of chatter online. Countless users continue to debate whether or not 10 years is an appropriate punishment for Lanez.
Now, new reports suggest that Lanez had the opportunity to shave off more than half of his 10-year sentence. According to VladTV, the district attorney offered the artist a plea deal, which would have seen him spending only four years behind bars. Apparently, Lanez turned down the plea deal, and opted instead to take the case to trial. Unfortunately for him, the trial didn’t work out to get him any less time than the plea deal would have had him serving.
Tory Lanez Could Have Served Four Years

The motion additionally stated that if Lanez were to be released from prison, he would live in the Los Angeles area with his wife and their child.
