Lil Wayne Sentenced to Three Years Probation for AZ Drug Charges
The rapper was arrested in 2008, while passing through Arizona on his tour bus, where police found marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and an unregistered .40-caliber gun. He was charged with felony possession of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, drug paraphernalia and misconduct involving weapons.
After striking a deal with the prosecution, Weezy reportedly faced the judge via video monitor today, and pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug. Wayne's probation will begin upon his release from Rikers Island, where he is currently halfway through an unrelated year-long sentence for weapons possession.
"We're quite glad that we were able to wrap everything up," Wayne's lawyer said. "It's a favorable plea agreement that will allow Mr. Carter to pursue his career."
