Lil Wayne’s sentencing in a NYC courthouse has been postponed due to dental surgery the soon-to-be-incarcerated rapper will have.
From MTV News:
Lil Wayne’s lawyer, Stacey Richman, informed the judge that she sent a notification to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office that the rapper is suffering from a cracked tooth and would need to postpone his sentence. The judge agreed and ruled to reschedule for March 2.
The rapper is set to undergo surgery February 12 in Miami, according to Richman. He will need a week to 10 days to recover. His defense offered prosecutors February 25 as a date for Wayne to turn himself him in after surgery, but Judge Charles H. Solomon instead selected March 2.
The judge then warned Wayne that he must return to Miami on Tuesday. Solomon insisted if he leaves tomorrow, there would be a chance his surgery would be delayed due to hazardous weather conditions leaving New York.
“I don’t want this to get pushed back anymore,” Solomon said. “This is the last adjournment.”
