And will spend a year in prison…
Thursday, October 22, 2009 - 16:47
Rapper Lil Wayne has unexpectedly pleaded guilty to a gun possession charge and has been sentenced to one year in prison as part of a plea deal.
The Lollipop star- real name Dwayne Carter- was arrested in 2007 on his tour bus after a weapon was found.
After changing his plea in a Manhattan court room today Weezy was asked what kind of gun he had owned and answered: “A .40-caliber semi-automatic.”
The only other time Wayne spoke was to answer “yes” when asked if understood the plea deal.
It’s now likely he will serve 8-10 months in jail from February 2010 if he gets the sentence reduced for good behaviour.
Today’s hearing lasted 20 minutes with the rapper exiting the court with his hood over his head accompanied by bosses from Cash Money Records.
