*Jailed rapper Lil Wayne caught a legal break of sorts yesterday when he was sentenced to three years probation by an Arizona judge for possession of drugs.
He was busted in 2008, while passing through Arizona on his tour bus, where police found marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and an unregistered .40-caliber gun. Weezy was charged with felony possession of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, drug paraphernalia and misconduct involving weapons.
Wayne’s probation will begin upon his release from Rikers Island, where he is currently serving an unrelated year-long sentence for weapons possession.
“We’re quite glad that we were able to wrap everything up,” Wayne’s lawyer said. “It’s a favorable plea agreement that will allow Mr. Carter to pursue his career.”
