RAPPER Lil Wayne IS AGAINST Black Lives Matter & PRO Donald Trump
Lil Wayne entered a guilty plea in his federal court case for possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. He's facing up to 10 years in prison if the president doesn't pardon him.
He was arrested on December 23 at the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport December 23, 2019.
At the time of arrest, Lil Wayne was searched following an anonymous tip. He was a passenger on a private plane that made a stop in Florida on its way to California. During his interview with police, Wayne told them that he had the gun in his bag. Police then got a search warrant and found a gold-plated Remington 1911, .45-caliber handgun. It was loaded with six rounds of ammunition. They also reportedly found personal use amounts of cocaine, ecstasy, and oxycodone in the same bag.
He was officially charged last month, November 17.
His attorney Howard Srebnick said at that time that, “Carter is charged with possessing a gold-plated handgun in his luggage on a private plane. There is no allegation that he ever fired it, brandished it, used it, or threatened to use it. There is no allegation that he is a dangerous person. The charge is that because he was convicted of a felony in the past, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm.”
