Lil Wayne’s Attorney Wants Drug Charge Reduced

An attorney representing Lil Wayne in his Arizona drug case filed a motion in Yuma County Superior Court on Friday (March 7) to have a charge of drug possession reduced. According to the Associated Press, attorney James Tilson wants the charge downgraded from possession of drugs with intent to sell to simple possession. Tilson argues that, although an initial grand jury complaint states that his client was caught with 29 grams of cocaine, subsequent lab reports set the amount at less than eight grams. In Arizona, a defendant in possession of more than nine grams is typically presumed to be selling rather than using. This important detail could determine whether or not Weezy receives probation or jail time. A hearing on the motion has been scheduled for May 13. Wayne was arrested on January 22 after a search of his tour bus at a Border Patrol checkpoint turned up drugs and a .40 caliber pistol.
