Lil Wayne — Sentenced in AZ While Serving in NY
Lil Wayne finally got some good news — he won’t have to serve any time behind bars in Arizona … after he finishes his jail stint in New York.
Moments ago, an Arizona judge sentenced the rapper to three years probation for his role in a 2008 drug bust at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint. Under the deal, Wayne pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug.
Wayne — who appeared in court today through a video link from his NY jail — will begin his sentence after he’s released from Rikers Island … where he’s doing time for a gun charge.
As we previously reported, Border Patrol agents claimed they found a ton of drugs inside the rapper’s tour bus — including weed, coke and ecstasy.
