Lil Wayne Heading To Prison
March 8, 2010 at 12:33 PM (PT)
LIL WAYNE was sentenced to eight months in protective custody on RIKERS ISLAND, the NEW YORK CITY prison, for carrying a .40-caliber semi-automatic after a concert two years ago at the BEACON THEATER in MANHATTAN.
THE NEW YORK POST reports that when he was "asked by MANHATTAN Supreme Court Justice CHARLES SOLOMON if he wanted to speak before sentencing, the rapper shook his head no. Nothing at all?" repeated the judge. The rapper shook his head no again."
The rapper's sentencing was cancelled on three prior occasions -- once because he needed to complete major dental surgery, and twice more because of a fire and resulting repair delays at the courthouse.
