Tory Lanez failed in his bid to stay out of prison.

Judge David Herriford denied the rapper’s motion for bail in Los Angeles today (Thurs).

Tory Lanez, whose release name is Daystar Peterson, requested bail while appealing his conviction for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in 2020.

A jury found him guilty of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, discharging a firearm with gross negligence and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle in December 2022.

Last month, Judge Herriford sentenced Tory Lanez to 10 years in prison.

Lawyers filed a motion for bail in August. They hoped a judge would allow Tory Lanez to live with his wife and son in the Los Angeles area while his legal team appealed his conviction.

Judge Herriford rejected the request, citing Tory Lanez’s violent felony conviction and past violations of court orders.

Tory Lanez will serve his 10-year sentence in state prison. He maintains his innocence.
