After not one, not two, but three postponed sentencing hearings, rapper Lil Wayne has finally been taken into custody and is heading off to jail.TMZ reports that despite the first delay — due to dental problems — and the second and third delays, which were because of a courthouse fire, Wayne is on his way to serve a year in jail on a gun conviction.
When the judge asked Wayne before the sentencing began if he’d like to say anything, he shook his head no. Afterwards he bowed his head to his fans, was cuffed and taken from the room. He’s requested special medical attention in the slammer because of his painful teeth problems.
Other than that, he won’t be so special: E! Online reports that he’ll spend his time between meals in a 10-by-15-foot cell with a bed, sink, toilet and window facing a wall. He can watch TV with other inmates in a day room, but there are no iPods allowed.
His pals and family can visit him twice a week. Hope they bring him some good books to read!
