Rapper Lil Wayne has pled guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug in Arizona.  He therefore may not have to serve jail time there once his current New York sentence is over.  YumaSun.com reports that Wayne appeared Friday at a change of plea hearing in a Yuma, Arizona courtroom via a video feed from Rikers Island Prison, where he’s currently incarcerated on weapons charges.  After entering his guilty plea, Lil Wayne’s charges for possession of a narcotic drug for sale, misconduct involving weapons, and possession of drug paraphernalia were dismissed.  The Arizona charges stem from an  incident in which his tour bus was stopped by the U.S. Border Patrol.  Officers found cocaine, ecstasy, and a handgun on the tour bus.   Drug Enforcement agents then searched his vehicle, finding drug paraphernalia, four ounces of marijuana, and a 40-caliber pistol.

Superior Court Judge Mark Wayne Reeves will sentence the rapper on June 30th.  He could face 36 months of probation, which would begin once he is done serving his current eight-month sentence in New York.
