NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- A female jail captain at New York's Rikers Island is being questioned for allegedly giving rapper Lil Wayne preferential treatment, officials say.
Capt. Latanya Brown has been accused of spending extra time with Wayne and allowing him to remain in his cell while other inmates are sent to the facility's recreation yard, the New York Post said Sunday.
An unnamed source at the jail said the department has a zero-tolerance policy for officers who give special treatment to inmates. Brown was not available for comment, the newspaper said.
The rap star was sentenced to a year in jail after authorities found a weapon on his tour bus. The sentencing was part of a plea deal attorneys reached with prosecutors last November regarding his 2007 arrest after a gun was found in his tour bus.
Wayne could be released by October.
>Did jailed rapper get special treatment?
Fist we have to ask: “Was he Black or some other politically protected class.”
Then we have to ask: “Was there a reasonable expectation on the agents of the government that they would not be caught and/or called on such behavior?”
I wish they’d post a photo of Latanya. I wonder if she’s a big girl?
In April, just one month after the rapper started his year-long sentence for attempted criminal possession of a weapon, a guard at the complex was fired for allegedly spying on Lil Wayne.
Amelia Negron was fired for glimpsing at Lil Wayne, although she denied the charges, claiming her union boss forced her to make a confession.
This is not the first time a rapper has caused controversy on Rikers Island.
In June of 2009, it was revealed that Foxy Brown allegedly received preferential treatment during her 9-month stay on Rikers Island in 2006.
The rapper held a photo shoot and allegedly received unlimited phone/TV use, makeup, luxury clothing and outside meals.
In October of 2009, Correction Chief Peter Curcio and a Rabbi named Leib Glanz resigned over the scandal, after the Brown reports, in addition to allegations that Rabbi Glanz arranged a lavish bar mitzvah for an inmates son.

Possession of a weapon on a tour bus is a total phony charge to begin with. It is in fact his “home” while on tour. The “castledcotorine” should be a federal law. “Criminal intent” just for having a weapon in your house? I am not one of Lil’ Wayne’s fans but this is a waste of taxpayer dollars. Not that it matters in NY.
The NY agenda sucks, therefore, NY sucks....
Genius. Who is dumber... him or the morons who send him money to listen to his garbage? Amazing. And they think whitey it taking their money.
The 10 words that would guarantee an immediate heart attack: “Dad, I’d like you to meet my fiancee, Little Wayne.”
I wonder if shes a big girl?
That ain't always a bad thing.
She might be angling for a position as dancer after he gets out.
Oh my God
Becky, look at her butt
It is so big
She looks like one of those rap guys girlfriends
Who understands those rap guys
They only talk to her because she looks like a total prostitute
I mean her butt
It’s just so big
I can’t believe it’s so round
It’s out there
I mean, gross
Look, she’s just so black!
I don’t care what anyone says. “Lollipop” is da bomb!
I wrote a diryt parody on this song and the parentals were none too pleased.
So much talent in one person. Hard to imagine./s
Lennon and McCartney got nothing on this guy....pure poetry.
I don't like the guy but he's not a wannabe anything. One of his CDs sold more than a million copies in the first week it was released. That's not easy to do.
Doesn’t speak much about the intelligence in this country.
True. That’s another issue entirely.
Such an intelligent sensitive face. This is truly a man of discernment and deep understanding.
While Lil’ Wayne is in jail, he’s perfecting his understanding of the Italian sonnet, I heard.
What a piece of garbage !
Heck ya!!!! Lillipop is my fav song ever! For some reason..
Sounds like Latanya has a crush, big deal.. on with life.
But what I want to really know is what these cops were doing in his private property anyways? His tour bus in which they “found” a gun.
Okay. I stand conrected. The word wanna be is hereby deleted. Does show that there are more than a million people with no taste.
