Looks Like Lil Wayne Will Be Going To Prison (Pleads Guilty)

Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty

Rapper Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to attempted weapons possession charges today (October 22).

As reported earlier, the rapper is expected to receive a maximum sentence of one year in jail, although he is expected to serve around eight months in prison for the offense.

The rapper had previously pleaded not guilty to the charges, but changed the plea to avoid a trial that was due to start January 20 and could have resulted in at least 3 ½ years in prison.

The guilty plea stems from an incident in New York in 2007, after police found a .40 caliber handgun during a search of his tour bus.

Originally, lawyers for Wayne planned to contest the charges.

Yesterday (October 21), the plea was entered after Wayne’s DNA evidence was allegedly found on the weapon and deemed admissible by a judge.

The DNA evidence found was reportedly small, and Wayne’s lawyers initially sparred with the prosecution over whether the DNA profiling technique used was scientifically acceptable.

Before the trial, Lil Wayne’s manager had publicly taken responsibility for the gun on the rapper’s VH1 special.

Lil Wayne, 27, also faces a trial in Arizona for felony drug possession and weapons charges, after a 2008 arrest during a routine stop at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint.

Via AHH and this is terrible news :( He will probably have to cut his dreads, and you can view a video below of Lil Wayne turning up to court earlier:

    The day he goes in Hip Hop will start to die. But Not for cash money. They will release alot of content and stay on the charts. Thats my prediction. The reason i say it will die is because who the people gonna go to for features now? Gucci mane?lmao, Gay-z?lmao o i know 50 cent!lmao super hard

    This some foul shit yo. If he does get locked up I’m gonna be back on my Game & BWS shit and whatever LilWayne/YM material they drop til he’s back. Fuck listening to some bullshit features by Oj & Gucci Fag-Garbage!

    He ain’t gonna do time though and if he does, a safe bet would be no more than 2 weeks max.

  • Ty

    weezy wont have to cur his dreads there are mad doods in the pen that have long hair so that shouldnt be an issue. 8 months though thats so much music for weezy that wont be made, and thats a damn shame

    ps Barack Obama should pardon Lil Wayne

  • Dwayne

    beuuff cè po coool mais nous sommes tous derrière toi quan tu sortira u fera tou pété

  • Yep!

    Wayne’s going to jail, so life is no longer worth living? Are you serious? Shit, the rap game needs a damn break from Wayne on every f*cking song. I don’t think he should have to go to jail for this to happen, but the game needs something fresh and new, not the same person or voice on every station. Too much of anything is bad. Too much weed, too much sex, too much “I don’t give a f*ck about nothing, f*ck you, yada dada” in your personality, and eventually you WILL go to jail no matter how much money you have. That type of attitude in life will lead you to one of 2 places (you all know which). Wayne has now proven this to you all. You have to care about how you do things in life, and make smart choices. He’s paying for a bad decision. Whether the gun was his or not, it shouldn’t have been on the bus, and especially not with bullets in it. Unnecessary. He has the money to buy security…BOTTOM LINE! He’ll probably do 6 months of “Martha Stewart Time” then come home, fuck a million hoes, drop another mixtape or two, finally release “The Carter 4″ or “Rebirth”, then who the hell knows? He needs to slow down, and this may be the thing to do it.

  • http://myspace.com/jw_2013 jordonxweible

    This is fuckin crazy. I never even saw it coming, I thought for sure he’d be found not guilty or at leasttt pay a bale:(:(:(:(:(

  • KacieH

    He better not have to cut his dreads.
    He does not need to go to prison.
    He needed that gun anyway, he is the best their is.

    I love Lil Wayne!!!
    He will come out greater than he already is.

    :( I’m so sad

  • DAYUMM_WEEZY

    THIS WILL BE THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MUSIC….PERIOD.

  • yeedee

    why the fuck does he get almost a year when only a .40 was found and T.I basically gets the same time but he bought machine guns and a whole lot of other shit with the intent to use them. its not fair. And yeah Weezy aint Weezy without tha dreads

  • yeedee

    FREE WEEZY!!!!!

  • Karu

    ALL Wayne fans should get together and start a big ass riot. Police is not able to confront whit that huge amount of people. Most of Wayne fans live in the US, they should do sth, not just watch how Wayne is put behind bars. This is some serious shit. Wayne doesn’t deserve it. He can’t go to jail.

  • http://www.youtube.com/humairoo humairrr

    OMFG CUT HIS DREADS OFF? i always wondered when he’s gonna do that and how it would look, but.. suppose it looks awful? he’s goingto prison for 8 months, but you’ll see, in the main time they gonna release so much tracks of him! because he already finished C4 and REBIRTH for those who were wondering, he told it in an interview. But still, not cool he has to go to prison.. Well 8 months is less worse that 3andahalf years!

    Thats bunch of BS right there. white man made the rules of right to bear arms everybody has a gun rather on them or in their homes why cant WEEZY carry one his an AMERICAN. gotta protect ourselves somehow. why do coloreds get jacked in the system. AMERICA needs to fix itself WEEZY didnt hurt no body. NYPD whats your probable cause to pull over his bus come on thats unreasonable search and seizure. NYPD violated his rights!

    Let WEEZY off on probation better yet dismiss this case its not a lagit case. he dont deserve to be locked up. better so LIL WAYNE BEST RAPPER ALIVE behind bars wont hurt him it will only make him stronger just like his lyrics MIDDLE FINGER TO THE JUDGE!
