Jury selection has begun in one of the biggest celebrity trials of the year. The opening statement is set for December 12 in Los Angeles. This is the city where prosecutors say Lanez shot Megan’s “foot several times and hurt her” in July 2020. At the time, she, whose real name is Megan Pete, was riding in the car with Tory, her old friend Kelsey, and a driver after leaving a party at Kylie Jenner’s house.
Months later, in October, prosecutors charged Tory with one count of assault with a semi-automatic firearm and one count of carrying an unregistered, loaded pistol in a vehicle. If convicted, he faces 22 years in prison.
In April, Tory was arrested for violating a no-contact order during the shooting by tweeting about Megan. The judge set his bail at $350,000. In October, he was arrested again – this time at his home.
The two conditions for Tory’s release in April are to be within 100 yards of Megan and not get into legal trouble. However, he allegedly assaulted August Alsina in early September during a confrontation, which led to an independent criminal investigation and breached the terms of his bail.
Megan, who has been facing charges of fabricating her injuries, recently criticized Drake for seemingly using her experience as a lyric. At the time, her attorney Alex Spiro stood up for her, saying Drake should explain himself.
“She’s confident in it because the evidence is solid in it because these things are irrefutable and cannot be cross-checked and facts are often presented in the courtroom and I believe,” Spiro said. that it will be here. TMZ.
