…the rapper, a felon, faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
American award winning rapper Lil Wayne has been charged with possession of federal Gun-possession, a charge arising from a late December 2019 plane search in Florida.
Weezy has been charged with count of possession of firearm and ammunition by the U.S Attorney for the Southern District of Florida.
If convicted, the rapper sentence could be as high as 10 years.
A court appearance is slated for December.
Weezy, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, in 2009 has served eight months in jail on a similar charge.
Weezy’s attorney Howard Srebnick explained on Tuesday that his client has been charged for “possessing a gold-plated handgun” in his luggage while travelling on the plane.
Srebnick also highlighted the fact that there is “no allegation that he is a dangerous person.”
Wayne was not the owner of the private plane.
