Lanez was found guilty of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and discharging a firearm with gross negligence.
During the trial, Lanez claimed that Megan's former friend Kelsey Harris was the one responsible for the shooting, while Harris denied any involvement.
Megan testified that she saw Lanez shoot her and that he told her to "dance b*tch" as he fired the gun. She also said that she was shocked and unsure of what was happening at the time.
Lanez's defense attempted to cast doubt on Megan's testimony in order to obtain a not-guilty verdict. However, the jury ultimately found Lanez guilty on all charges.
The sentencing for these charges has not yet been announced, but Lanez has stated in an interview that he could face up to 24 years in prison if convicted.
The verdict in the Tory Lanez trial has sparked strong reactions and controversy. It remains to be seen what the consequences will be for Lanez, but the case has certainly attracted a great deal of attention and discussion.
Discharging a firearm with gross negligence is another serious offense that can result in criminal charges. This involves recklessly or carelessly using a firearm in a way that poses a significant risk of injury or death to others. This can include firing a gun into a crowded area, firing a gun while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or failing to properly secure or handle a firearm. The specific charges and penalties will depend on the jurisdiction and the circumstances of the case.
It is important to remember that everyone is entitled to a fair and impartial trial, and it is the responsibility of the legal system to ensure that justice is served. Whether someone is charged with a crime or is the victim of a crime, it is important to have a clear understanding of the legal process and to seek the advice of a qualified legal professional.
