Hip hop star Lil Wayne’s sentencing was delayed thanks to some bad teeth.
The rapper was supposed to be sentenced Tuesday (Feb. 9) for his gun possession conviction, but a judge agreed to delay the sentencing until March 2.
Wayne’s attorney told the judge he needed some dental work done before he heads to jail. It might appear like Wayne is receiving special treatment, but if you think about it , this will save taxpayers money.
If Wayne is locked up, and he has medical issues because of his teeth, taxpayers will have to pay for his medical treatment.
Since Wayne is taking care of this issue beforehand, he will be financially responsible for his own treatment (with help from his insurance company).
