Lil Wayne rumored to have pleaded guilty in handgun case
Miami, Florida - Is Lil Wayne going to have to spend some time behind bars? The rapper has faced weapons charges before, but this time he has reportedly made a deal with the feds.
The rapper is said to have had a gold-plated Remington 1911, in his bag on a private jet flight from California to Miami. He also allegedly had a bag full of various drugs in amounts for personal use.
The firearm was discovered back in December 2019. Lil Wayne was previously convicted of a felony gun charge in New York in 2009. The 38-year-old, whose given name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., served eight months of a one-year sentence in 2010 for criminal possession of a weapon.
It seems that Lil Wayne has made a deal with the prosecution and decided to plead guilty. In return for accepting responsibility, the prosecutors have apparently promised to recommend a lighter sentence.
TMZ sources say that Lil Wayne can hope for a milder punishment, but that it is ultimately up to the judge.
