In a deal announced on June 21st, rapper Lil Wayne has plead guilty to a drug charge in Arizona, which may help him avoid jail time. The deal was made via video from New York where Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, is serving a year for gun possession.
The charge stems from a bust on his tour bus back in January 2008, where ecstasy was allegedly found in his backpack. Lil Wayne could face three years in prison for drug possession, but the plea deal could have him serve 36 months of probation instead.
The plea deal currently is only a recommendation, and will be confirmed at a later date when Lil Wayne goes in front of the judge.
