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.
