Jail Time For Lil Wayne?


Rapper Lil Wayne has been busy making babies all over the place and now the singer might be facing jail time.  Not good for him and certainly not for his kids.

From HipHopWired:

Wayne was arrested on his tour bus in January of 2008 after Arizona police discovered a loaded hand gun, marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy on board. Wayne’s been charged with one count of possession of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, misconduct involving weapons and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

Now he’s expected to appear in a Yuma County, Arizona court room at 1:30 p.m. on March 30, 2010 to face the music.

According to The Yuma Sun, Judge Mark Wayne Reeces made the decision Thursday in a federal court room. After asking attorneys how long they though the trial would last, Deane Sandry, who is prosecuting for the Yuma County Attorney’s Office responded: “I’m going to guesstimate that two weeks should be sufficient.”

While defense attorney, James Tilson responded by saying due to his client’s notoriety and the media coverage of the case, the trial could take as long as three weeks.

The date is not set in stone however; a final trial management conference will take place two weeks prior to the trial.

Innocent until proven guilty of course, but what if he is guilty?  What kind of example is he setting for his children?
