American rapper Lil Wayne pleads guilty to federal gun charge, faces up to 10 years in prison

American rapper, Lil Wayne pleaded guilty on Friday to a federal charge that he possessed a weapon despite being a convicted felon, and faces up to 10 years in prison.

The rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, admitted possessing the .45 calibre gun and six rounds of ammunition after his private plane was searched on arriving in Miami from California on 23 December 2019.

A search warrant said the father-of-four told investigators the gun was a Father’s Day gift.

He entered the plea during a hearing held remotely before U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams.

“Your honor, I plead guilty to the charge,” Carter told the judge.

The federal charge carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years, but likely Carter will get far less time than that, according to reports. He is free on $250,000 bail but had to surrender his passport.

The charge stems from a weapons conviction for Carter in New York more than a decade ago, for which he was sentenced to eight months in prison as convicted felons are barred under federal law from possessing firearms.

Carter’s lawyer, Howard Srebnick, said he considered a motion to suppress the search of the plane as a violation of the rapper’s constitutional rights.

“I must say I thought it was a very viable motion. He has decided not to pursue a motion to suppress,” Srebnick said.

The Miami U.S. attorney’s office also said in the news release that investigators found small amounts of cocaine, ecstasy, and oxycodone in a bag belonging to Carter, but he was not charged with any drug crime.

In a studio discussion on UTV ‘United Showbiz monitored by MyNewsGh.com,’ the loudmouth comedienne said she fell in love with the personality of the former President.

When asked by the host Nana Ama Mcbrown why she shuns the NDC to join the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Afia said” I fell in love with John Mahama, not the NDC, I loved the personality of John Mahama because he was the gym type. From Kufour to Attah Mills and now Nana Addo they were all old but Mahama looked energetic and worked out.”

“I switch because I love the policies of the Free SHS by Akufo-Addo and the NPP because my twins enjoyed the policies and if they mess up I will switch,” she added.
