The trial of hip-hop star Tory Lanez could end today. Media Take Out spoke exclusively to a person close to the rapper, who told us that prosecutors have been offering Tory a SWEETHEART DEAL over the past few days that would greatly reduce his criminal liability.
Tory is on trial in Los Angeles for allegedly shooting his ex-girlfriend Meg Thee Stallion. If convicted, he faces up to 22 years in prison.
Tory is currently on trial facing three felonies – negligent firing of a firearm, assault with a semi-automatic firearm and carrying a loaded and unregistered firearm.
The insider told Media Take Out that prosecutors have offered to drop the most serious felony – assault with a semi-automatic firearm – if he pleads guilty to the other two felonies.
If Tory accepts the deal, he faces just 3 years in prison instead of 22.
The deal would also allow Tory to claim the gun was triggered “accidentally” and Avoid the negative stigma of being labeled the man who shot Megan in the foot on purpose.
We’re told Tory and his legal team didn’t accept the deal – at least not yet.
The insider explained: “Tory wants them to drop this negligent discharge crime too. He’s willing to take the gun charge, which probably wouldn’t mean jail time.”
Prosecutors are scrambling to get the case back on track after their star witness – Meg’s best friend Kelsey – turned the case on its head by taking the stand and calling Meg a liar.
During her testimony in the last few days Kelsey contradicted almost ALL of Meg’s statementsand claims that she never saw Tory shoot Megan, although she was right there when it all happened.
Kelsey is also accused by Tory’s legal team of being the shooter. Meg’s former bestie has admitted to having gunpowder residue on her hands, and she has attempted to take the Fifth Amendment multiple times during her testimony. Kelsey also testified that she felt “pressure” from prosecutors to lie against Tory because she learned he would argue that she was the shooter.
What do you think Tory should do – should he accept the deal? Or try to be acquitted by the jury?
