Lil Wayne’s Drug & Gun Charges Trial Set For March


Lil Wayne will go on trial next March on felony drug possession and weapons charges he faces in Yuma County, Ariz.

The trial date was set during a court hearing in Yuma on Thursday, it will take place at 1:30 p.m. March 30, 2010. A final trial management conference will also be scheduled by written court order and take place about two weeks before the trial.

The case against Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, stems from his arrest at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint on Interstate 8 east of Yuma in January 2008. Authorities said they found cocaine, Ecstasy and a handgun on his tour bus.

Lil Wayne has pleaded not guilty. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call on Thursday.

Chief criminal Yuma County Attorney Roger Nelson says his office doesn’t offer misdemeanor plea deals on such cases and that’s probably one of the reasons why the case hasn’t been resolved.

Lil Wayne could be doing some “T.I. time”… let’s hope he gets off of his charges. What do you guys think?
