Tory Lanez is getting special treatment while behind bars, as it has been revealed that he is currently on a 22-hour lockdown while waiting for a transfer to state prison.

Last week, Lanez was given a 10-year sentence for the July 2020 shooting of Megan Thee Stallion. Currently, he’s in Los Angeles County Jail with few privileges.

TMZ reports that Tory Lanez is being held apart from the regular inmates in an ‘administrative segregation unit,’ designed for individuals who can’t be safely housed with others. He’s allowed only two hours out of his cell each day.

In addition, the 31-year-old Tory Lanez is allowed only three hours of outdoor time each week for his mandated recreation period. Jail staff also check on him every 30 minutes, following the usual procedure in the administrative segregation unit.

As a small comfort, Lanez is “able to load up on goodies at the commissary.”

Tory Lanez is likely to experience this highly restricted routine for a few more weeks until he’s moved to an intake center. At that stage, he’ll find out which California prison he’ll be staying in for the duration of his sentence.

Although he was originally sentenced to ten years in prison, Law&Crime reporter, Meghann Cuniff, has recently revealed that Tory Lanez will have about a year deducted because of time he has already spent behind bars.

“Lanez will be credited for 231 days he’s already spent in jail, and he gets 15% credit of 34 days,” Cuniff tweeted last week. “[Judge] Herriford also is crediting his 40 days of house arrest, for a total of 305 days.”

She added: “He’ll request bail pending appeal, which will be heard Aug. 15. (Extremely unlikely to be granted.)”
