Lil Wayne Accepts Plea Deal In NYC Gun Case — Expected To Get One Year In Jail

By Allen Starbury   /   Published 10/22/09

Lil WayneJust days after news broke that DNA profiling was to be used in Lil Wayne's New York gun case, the rapper pleaded guilty in court on Thursday (October 22) on the two-year-old charge.

For his guilty plea, the 27-year-old rapper (real name: Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr.) is expected to receive one year in jail during sentencing, sometime in February 2010.

According to the Associated Press, Weezy spoke respectfully, answering the judge's questions with "yes, sir" and "no, sir" responses, as he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of attempted criminal possession of a weapon.

He admitted guilt for a loaded .40-caliber handgun found on his tour bus after it was stopped following a Manhattan concert on July 22, 2007.

He had previously pleaded not guilty to the charges, and his lawyer disputed that the gun was even Lil Wayne's.

On Thursday, State Supreme Court Justice Charles Solomon warned Lil Wayne that he wouldn't be able later to withdraw the plea, as others have tried in the past.

"I'm not one of those people," said the rapper.

Weezy faced at least 3 1/2 years in prison if convicted of the original weapons-possession charges against him.

He's due back in court December 15 before his sentencing date, which has yet to be set.

    Damn, the minute they had DNA evidence, Weezy jumped on that plea bargain.

    NY gun laws are sh*t anyway, completely stomp over the right of a person to have a gun so they can defend themselves.

  • nychris

    what a shame...i dont like how rappers are okay with going to jail these days, and i dont like how rappers get convicted of stupid things like drugs and guns. the one thing i thought everyone learned from the michael vick case is to let the goonies handle the dirty work and just keep bringing in the money the best way you know how.

    spend the money on the presidential security when your caked up. when your raking in the cash part of the territory drama and hate.

    when we grow up we leave child like things alone. you have the money to do things right if music is your passion.
    in 8 months drake gone be ole newz and it's gonna be a hotter rapper tring to take the spot.

    wayne fans will still bless and love him through out his time. and when he comes home head will be even stronger.

Everybody knows he won't do any time in a real prison, he'll be going to a fake ass Martha Stewart prison where he'll be playing tennis and butt darts with other little joto bangers. Fuck that fool he should learn how to rap, not moan and groan over a beat.
