Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty, Expected to Serve One Year in Prison

Lil Wayne

Around the time T.I. is expected to be released from prison in February, another all-star rapper will be heading in. Lil Wayne will be sentenced to one year behind bars as part of his plea deal for attempted gun possession.

The rapper, born Dwayne Carter Jr., pleaded guilty to weapon charges on Thursday (Oct. 22) in Manhattan, and expects to receive a one-year jail sentence. He must also forfeit his passport.

The charges stem from an incident that took place on July 22, 2007, when police pulled over Lil Wayne’s tour bus after a show at New York’s Beacon Theatre. Officers found a .40-caliber semi-automatic loaded weapon in a Louis Vuitton bag on the vehicle.

Wayne, 27, remains free on bail while awaiting his February sentencing. The somber-looking rapper only said “What’s up?” to reporters as he left the courthouse. He wore black jeans, a gray coat, white T-shirt, and blue Chuck Taylors, and was accompanied by Cash Money Records executives Birdman and Slim.

He is expected to start serving his one-year sentence in February 2010, which could be reduced to eight to 10 months with good behavior.

In addition to the aforementioned charges, Weezy is scheduled for trial on felony drug possession and weapons charges from a January 2008 arrest at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in Arizona. He has pleaded not guilty in that case.

    The only “permit” Weezy needs is the SECOND AMENDMENT (Read the Constitution!)

    Y’all NYCers need to VOTE BLOOMBERG OUT OF OFFICE (the election is next month). He may not be in charge of these cases, but he’s sure a staunch supporter of all of ‘em! If you think Bush disregarded the Constitution, Bloomberg’s put it in his shredder! To make things worse, there cops are above the law (remember Sean Bell?)

    I have a challenge for you Mr. Obama: If you’re so into CHANGE, then MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN and PARDON THEM ALL, and then I might switch sides to support you!

    Damn Wayne! Seems to me like these rappers need to stop messing with guns.

    Well, look on the bright side, we will actually get to see what a year feels like without having to hear a Wayne feature on every other song. I like Wayne, but a break will be a good thing. When he comes back, we will appreciate him more than ever.

    I wouldn’t say i’m necessarily happy that he’s getting jail time but it’s refreshing because it’s good to know that these celebrities are being dealt with in a normal manner.
