Lil Wayne Charged With Gun Possession, Faces A 10 Year Sentence If Convicted

Bad news! Remember at the end of 2019 when Lil Wayne got caught with a gold-plated pistol in his luggage on board a private jet that he said was a Father’s Day gift?

Well according to TMZ, Tunechi has just been charged by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District Of Florida for gun possession and ammunition by a convicted felon.

Wayne could face serious prison time if he gets convicted; up to 10 years. He is scheduled to appear in court next month. You can read what Weezy‘s attorney, Howard Srebnick, had to say below:

“Carter is charged with possessing a gold-plated handgun in his luggage on a private plane. There is no allegation that he ever fired it, brandished it, used it or threatened to use it. There is no allegation that he is a dangerous person. The charge is that because he was convicted of a felony in the past, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Although the Supreme Court has not yet decided the constitutional question, Justice Amy Coney Barrett recently wrote an appellate dissenting opinion in which she stated that ‘Absent evidence that he either belongs to a dangerous category or bears individual markers of risk, permanently disqualifying [a convicted felon] from possessing a gun violates the Second Amendment’.”
