Lil Wayne Finally Goes to Jail

March 8, 2010

Well, it’s finally official: Lil Wayne has been sentenced to a year in prison.

After a number of ridiculous sentencing delays for his gun-possession charge, Lil Wayne officially turned himself into authorities today. MTV is reporting that a riot almost broke out when Lil Wayne entered the front of the Manhattan Criminal Court Building to begin his year in jail. When in the courtroom, Judge Charles H. Solomon went over Wayne’s charges one last time, at which point police handcuffed Lil Wayne and took him away. Wayne will serve his jail time under protective custody. What a tough guy.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that doesn't mind this convenient break from Lil Wayne.
