Update: Lil Wayne Sentencing Postponed Again, Lawyer Speaks on New Court Date

Lil Wayne has managed to catch another break. The Young Money General’s scheduled sentencing for a 2007 gun charge in New York City was postponed this afternoon (March 2), due to a courthouse fire, reports the Associated Press.

As previously reported Weezy was scheduled to appear in court today and receive a one-year sentence for a second degree gun possession charge that he plead guilty to last October. Last month, the rap superstar received a one-month extension in order to get dental work done before beginning his time behind bars.

Court spokesman David Bookstaver told the AP that the sentencing was among proceedings canceled due a basement fire at a Lower Manhattan courthouse. The court will be closed for the remainder of the day.

XXLmag.com spoke to Lil Wayne’s lawyer Stacey Richman about the status of the New Orleans-bred MC’s sentencing. According to the defense attorney Wayne does not have a new court date as-of-yet. “We are hoping it will be tomorrow,” she wrote in an email.
