Lil’ Wayne’s Lawyer Says Cops Had No Right; Hearing Delayed In NY Gun Case

According to Lil Wayne’s attorney, Stacey Richman, police stories against Lil Wayne don’t add up and documents show it. The rapper’s hearing has been reset.

According to Lil Wayne’s attorney, Stacey Richman, there are questions about the validity of the story of a New York police officer named Diane Hornung which shows conflict in the officer’s documents. The officer claimed that she found Lil Wayne (Weezy) in possession of a handgun in July of 2007 in Manhattan after he left a concert with rapper Ja Rule, while documents show Hornung was blocks away helping to arrest Ja Rule and two other men on gun charges.

Officer Diane Hornung testified during a pre-trial Monday, September 8, 2008 that she smelled marijuana smoke coming from Lil’ Wayne’s tour bus and that the rapper was sitting wearing underwear on a bed and allegedly saw him trying to hide something in a bag. While the rapper proceeded to get dressed, she looked inside his bag and reportedly found a handgun.

Attorney Stacey Richman states that the officers stopped and boarded the tour bus without probable cause and the gun charges should be dropped.

Lil Wayne plead not guilty to illegal gun possession. The rapper faces a felony weapons charge with a mandatory sentence of 3-1/2 years in jail if convicted. The case which was scheduled for September 16th, was rescheduled due to witness scheduling and has been postponed until October.
