Lil Wayne’s Gun Charge Sentencing Has Been Pushed Back

Lil Wayne Gun Charge Sentencing Has Been Pushed Back

It looks like Lil Wayne will have to wait a couple of months before he is sentenced for illegally carrying a gun on his private jet at the end of 2019.

According to AllHipHop, Wayne‘s attorney Howard Srebnick has claimed the January 28th sentencing date given at the virtual court hearing just over a week ago was too ambitious.

The lawyer has been successful in submitting a new request to the United States District Court for the Southern District Of Florida asking for Tunechi‘s sentencing date to be pushed back to early March.

Tune could face up to 10-years behind bars for his gun possession by a convicted felon charge, but there is a possibility of a reduced sentence, due to him pleading guilty.

Even though there has not been a date confirmed by the judge as of right now, Howard has suggested that Weezy should be sentenced on the afternoon of either March 2nd, 4th, 9th, or the 11th. I will update this post when the date gets confirmed! The new sentence date is March 4th!

After finding out last month Lil Wayne had been charged for carrying a gold-plated .45-caliber Glock handgun in his luggage on his private jet that he claimed was a Father’s Day gift on December 23rd, 2019, Wayne had his first court appearance yesterday.

Tunechi pleaded guilty to the gun possession by a convicted felon charge by telling the judge over a virtual hearing in a Miami federal court: “Your honor, I plead guilty”.

The sentencing for Weezy is scheduled for next month on January 28th, 2021 and unfortunately, he faces up to 10 years in prison, due to having a previous gun charge from over 10 years ago. However, the punishment may not be as harsh as that after taking responsibility!

Lil Wayne Admits To Owning Gold Pistol Found On His Private Jet, Says It Was A Father’s Day Gift

Lil Wayne Admits To Owning Gold Pistol Found On His Private Jet, Says It Was A Fathers Day Gift

According to court documents obtained by the Miami Herald, Lil Wayne has admitted to owning a gold-plated pistol that was found in his luggage on his private jet that got raided at Miami International Airport on December 23rd by federal agents.

After numerous drugs including heroin, ecstasy, cocaine and marijuana, a gold-plated .45 caliber handgun along with bullets and $25,938 in cash was found, Weezy has told the FBI agents and ATF officers that the gun was given to him as a Father’s Day gift.

Tunechi was never charged in the case and the feds allowed him to leave after their search, but if the case ever makes it to a large federal grand jury, then it could cause serious issues for him especially with the fact that Tune is a convicted felon from a weapons case over 10 years ago!
