This Chicago Criminal attorney is somewhat surprised that everyone’s favorite jailed
rapper, er hip-hop artist, or perhaps growler Lil’ Wayne has pled guilty while behind bars to another criminal charge. She's posted here and here about Lil Wayne's criminal matters, but wait, there's more!
Rapper Lil Wayne may not have to spend any time behind bars in Arizona on drug and weapon charges once he gets out of jail in New York, after entering a plea agreement with prosecutors in Yuma County Superior Court Friday morning.
During a short change of plea hearing, in which he appeared via video feed from a New York jail, Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug. The charge stems from a Jan. 22, 2008, incident in which the rapper's tour bus was stopped at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint near Dateland, 78 miles east of Yuma, where authorities said they found cocaine, Ecstasy and a handgun on his tour bus.
In exchange for Carter's guilty plea, charges of possession of a narcotic drug for sale, misconduct involving weapons and possession of drug paraphernalia against him were dismissed.
So the tour bus gets searched for a whole lot more than undocumented folks at the Border Patrol. You don’t really need me to tell you what you can and can’t bring with you to the border do you?
