Lil Wayne Faces New 10-Year Prison Stint!!!
Lil Wayne has been arrested, after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon.
Lil Wayne In Trouble With The Law…Again!
Lil Wayne, the 38-year-old veteran rapper whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. has pled guilty to a federal weapons charge in the Southern District of Florida. Court documents reveal that Wayne entered a guilty plea for illegal gun possession in the case.
Following an anonymous tip, Wayne’s private plane was searched on Dec. 23, 2019. Wayne was promptly arrested at the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport after touching down from a flight from California. The rapper, known by many by the name of Weezy, was searched and the handgun was discovered. Allegedly, on his possession was a gold-plated Remington 1911, .45-caliber handgun loaded with six rounds of ammunition. But that’s not all that was found on him. Also revealed, according to court documents, was personal use amounts of cocaine, ecstasy, and oxycodone.
On November 17th, Weezy was federally charged. As noted by TMZ, Wayne may have pleaded guilty in hopes of a lighter sentence. Lil Wayne now faces upwards of a 10-year prison stint.
This is what his attorney Howard Srebnick had to say back in November when the charge was announced –
“The charge is that because he was convicted of a felony in the past, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm”.
“The federal sentencing guidelines call for substantially lower and I would not look at the maximum exposure to decide anyone’s sentence and all the facts need to be thoroughly reviewed…”
Being Charged With Felony Gun Cases Nothing New For Weezy
Sentencing in the new case is set to convene on January 28, 2021.
