Tory Lanez Will Be Sentenced Tomorrow, Meghann Cuniff Reports

"Megan said she struggled with whether to attend in person," Meghann Cuniff expressed. "Her absence should be seen as her preserving her mental well being. She said since Tory shot her, 'I've not experienced a single day of [peace].' 'He lied to anyone that would listen,' Megan said of Lanez. Megan said mercy is for people who show remorse, and Lanez has shown none. She thanked for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office for their support. She wants the sentence to be a message for everyone woman of violence.

"Important: Judge Herriford said he believes Lanez’s actions after the shooting, the social media posts and harassment of Megan, are a major aggravating factor in his sentence," she continued. "He says he won’t consider lack of remorse, but he says considering the post-shooting actions are similar." As such, it will only be a little longer until we learn how damning and punitive the sentence will be.
