Lil Wayne Could Face A 10 Year Prison Sentence


Rapper Lil Wayne could be facing a lengthy prison sentence. Nearly a year after the initial incident, Lil Wayne 's gun possession has resulted in his being charged with a federal offense. According to CNN, the new charges carry a potential 10-year prison sentence if he is convicted. The rapper was charged Tuesday with criminal possession of a firearm and ammunition, as a prior felony offender. The charges stem from an alleged December 23, 2019, incident in which a handgun was found in his luggage on a private plane. A hearing in the case is scheduled for Dec. 11.

  • Controversial 30-year prison sentence for cannabis consumption unleashes public anger in Tunisia

    Tunisia, Feb 15 (EFE), (Camera: Natalia Román Morte).- In January, a Tunisian court handed three young men an unprecedented 30-year prison sentence for possession and use of cannabis, unleashing controversy and public anger in the country.A court of appeal will decide Tuesday on the sentence, issued on January 20 by a court in the province of El Kef, 200 kilometres west of the capital, which sentenced the three young men to the maximum penalty for having consumed cannabis in a sports stadium —which is considered a public space and, therefore, an aggravating factor-. FOOTAGE OF EL KEF AND PROTESTS AGAINST THE SENTENCE. SOUNDBITES OF:-SARAH LAABIDI, DETAINEE'S MOTHER, "What is an unemployed person going to do? Going to a café or consuming these substances. What is left in El Kef? As my son says, the factories have closed and there is no job. When I return home and see him sleeping it breaks my heart. Even when I feel like telling him to get up and look for work, I tell myself, let him sleep, he'd better not go outside."-MOLKA BOUDERBALA, DETAINEES' DEFENSE ATTORNEY:"We have a problem with this law in Tunisia because three out of every four detainees are drug users. It is not normal. This law has become a punishment for young Tunisians."-ZIED GHANNEY, DEMOCRATIC CURRENT MP:"If the State creates a weak link in this entire process, which is the person who turns to drugs, it does not mean that we are going to destroy him and put him in prison, that we make him a criminal. But we say to him: we listen to you, we suffer with you. I'm not encouraging him to do it, I want to help him get out of that situation."
