Lil Wayne Sentencing Delayed Yet Again
Lil Wayne’s sentencing has been rescheduled again until Monday, after several delays. Read more on this story below.
Rapper Lil Wayne is scheduled to appear before a judge on Monday and turn himself in to begin his one-year jail sentence.
Lil Wayne had been scheduled to appear in a Manhattan courtroom on Tuesday, but a fire at the court building delayed the hearing.
This is the third time they have had to delay the rapper’s sentencing. Lil Wayne was originally slated to be sentenced last month, but his attorney made a last-minute request to postpone the proceedings so Wayne could undergo dental surgery. The judge granted the request and rescheduled the proceedings for Tuesday. But after the fire occurred Tuesday morning, all court cases were rescheduled.
Wayne is expected to formally enter a guilty plea for gun possession charges. The rapper will reportedly be given a one-year prison term, but may only serve eight months for good behavior.
On Tuesday, after learning of his extra night of freedom, Lil Wayne surprised fans at Madison Square Garden when he appeared onstage with Young Jeezy during Jay-Z’s show.
