Currently serving a one-year prison sentence on a gun charge in New York’s Rikers Island, Lil Wayne appeared in a Yuma County, Arizona, courtroom on Friday (June 18) morning through live video feed to change his plea in a 2008 drugs and gun case there to guilty. The Yuma Sun reports that by doing so, his chances of more jail time lessen.
On January 22, 2008 authorities stopped Wayne’s tour bus at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint almost 80 miles east of Yuma. They found cocaine, marijuana, Ecstasy, drug paraphernalia and a .40-caliber handgun registered to Wayne. He was charged with felony possession of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, misconduct involving weapons and possession of drug paraphernalia. At the time Wayne pleaded not guilty to all the felony charges.
