Drug trial suggests involvement of Chris Brown, Lil Wayne

Texas fans of rappers Chris Brown and Lil Wayne might have heard that they could become part of a federal drug investigation. On April 6, authorities said they were looking into a $15,000 wire transfer sent by Brown to a record producer who is being tried on drug charges. The authorities believe that the money was paid by Brown to the producer for purchasing drugs.

Allegedly, the producer used money from selling drugs to buy items such as firearms and luxury cars among other items. According to one federal agent, after the producer was taken into custody in October, he claimed he had sold narcotics to Lil Wayne. The prosecution has also used text messages to show the link between the three men and the selling of drugs. However, the producer's attorneys are saying that he did not sell drugs and he purchased the items to show off on social media postings.

Brown could be facing felony drug charges if the allegations about his involvement are true. The severity of a felony drug charge is usually affected by several factors including what type of drug it is, the quantity, whether it is intended to be sold as opposed to personal use, and whether there are additional aggravating circumstances.

Even relatively minor drug charges can carry serious consequences. People who are in such a situation might want to discuss their drug charge defense strategies with an attorney. The options may vary depending on the situation. For example, if the defendant's Fourth Amendment rights were violated during the search that led to the seizure of the drugs, some or all of the evidence could be ruled inadmissible. In some cases, this could lead to the charges being dropped.
