Lil Wayne

in Protective Custody

3/8/2010 4:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lil Wayne just got a judge to agree to place him in protective custody while he serves one year in jail for a gun conviction.

videos
The judge asked Wayne before sentencing if he wanted to make a statement but Lil just shook his head no.

After he was sentenced, Lil Wayne was cuffed, turned to his fans in the courtroom and bowed his head.

Lil Wayne also asked for special medical attention while in the pokey because of his dental problems.

Lil Wayne's mentor, Birdman, was in court to bid him farewell.

This is the fourth time Wayne was supposed to be sentenced. The first time was postponed because of dental surgery and the second and third times were because of a fire in the courthouse.

TMZ, when will you guys learn to take a clear screen shot of your videos? It's not that hard. I could take a better shot from a YouTube video and it would be clearer.

You have got to be kidding me. This guy has not been sentenced to a year for a minor traffic violation. He is a dangerous felon and needs to be treated as such. Fist they let him off so he can have a stupid $150K diamond grill taken off his teeth, then there was the fire in the court house that kept him out of jail longer and now he wants protective custody! Not on the tax payers dine. Sell the diamond grill and use the money for his protective custody.

By the way, how the hell is this guy anyway????

why does TMZ use the most blurry and unviewable photos of people. Every other website has no problem putting a clear picture of the person the story is on yet TMZ takes the most unflattering and horrible photo of these people and uses them.

This photo you can't even tell what the heck it is. And most of the time they put up the worst picture possible of the person.

Its as if they do it to make the celeb look bad.
