“On Thursday (August 17), Meghann Cuniff, a persistent court reporter who has been dedicated to uncovering the details of the story, was the one who released the statement.
“I have been tormented and terrorized in every degree by the defendant,” Megan wrote in her statement. “He not only shot me, he made a mockery of my trauma. He tried to position himself as a victim and set out to destroy my character and my soul.”
She continued: “Today I beg this court to send a message to every victim of domestic violence and fully hold the defendant accountable for his criminal conduct. This is a statement for all survivors that their lives matter and there is zero tolerance for the torture that accompanies violence,” she said. “His crime warrants the full weight of the law. Thank you, your honor.”

Tory Lanez was handed a 10-year sentence in the case involving the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion. However, he is set to have almost a year deducted from the sentence due to time already served. As per Meghann Cuniff, it’s been reported that Tory Lanez will have a total of 305 days deducted from his sentence.
“Lanez will be credited for 231 days he’s already spent in jail, and he gets 15% credit of 34 days,” she wrote in a tweet on Wednesday (August 9). “Herriford also is crediting his 40 days of house arrest, for a total of 305 days. He’ll request bail pending appeal, which will be heard Aug. 15. (Extremely unlikely to be granted.)”
In another tweet, Cuniff reported that Deputy D.A. Kathy Ta said of Megan Thee Stallion: “I cannot emphasize enough the power that it must’ve taken someone with that level of trauma that she’s undergone and the willingness to come forward after being vilified online.”
