Lil Wayne goes solo in N.Y. jail solitary punishment



Published: Tue, October 5, 2010 @ 11:35 a.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — Lil Wayne is facing the music after being accused of breaking jail rules by having gear for listening to tunes: He can expect to go solo for the rest of his time behind bars in a gun case.

The Grammy Award-winning rapper was moved Monday into what city jail officials call "punitive segregation" for a month, until his expected November release date, Correction Department spokesman Stephen Morello said. It's his punishment for stashing a charger and headphones for a digital music player in his cell earlier this year, officials said.

Lil Wayne generally will now be confined to his new cell 23 hours a day, with such exceptions as visits and showers, instead of being allowed to mingle with other inmates most of the day. He'll eat in his cell and won't get to socialize even during his hour a day of recreation, Morello said.

Lil Wayne also will have to forego TV, and he'll be limited to one phone call a week instead of a chat a day or more, except for calls to his lawyer, Morello said.

The lawyer, Stacey Richman, had no immediate comment.

If Lindsay has a disease, then Lil Wayne has a disease! Few drug addicts are given the posh treatment of this young lady. In fact 23 hours in solitary will eliminate the need for the leg bracket and relapse.

Lindsay is getting in trouble for drugs and alcohol. While Lil Thug wannabe be is in jail for drug and gun charges. Something more serious.
