Rapper Lil Wayne has been sentenced to a year in jail after pleading guilty in a New York City gun case

"The Grammy Award-winner was taken away in handcuffs to start serving his term immediately after his sentencing. He pleaded guilty in October to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and admitted having a loaded gun on his tour bus in 2007. He will serve his sentence in city jails, not a state prison, and could be released in about eight months with good behaviour. Lil Wayne was born Dwayne Carter and has been one of rap's most prolific and profitable figures in recent years. His sentencing was postponed last month so he could undergo surgery on his bejewelled teeth"
