Lil Wayne Suffers Seizures; Ex-Inspector Castro Resentenced; Corbett Plans to Rework Lottery Deal
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

Lil' Wayne, aka Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., has been hospitalized in Los Angeles after having seizures. The 30-year-old rapper is at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. The reports coming from various sources were somewhat conflicted. TMZ was reporting that he was in the ICU in critical condition. While Wayne's own twitter from 9:45 pm EST says “I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.” It seems as though he is OK at this time from most accounts. The Associated Press says that a rep indicated he did suffer a seizure and is "recovering". Several other of Wayne's colleagues have also tweeted about his positive status, and have denounced the early reports of more dire circumstances related to his health. Carter has a history of seizures in recent years with several hospital trips. He's due to release his 10th album, I Am Not a Human Being, on March 26.

UPDATE: Lil' Wayne explained his recent seizures today in an interview saying that he has epilepsy and has suffered seizures for years. He was rushed to the hospital earlier this month after experiencing back-to-back seizures. Wayne said, says: “I’ve had a bunch of seizures, y’all just never hear about them.” He blames the recent bout on “just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself.”

Former Philadelphia Police Inspector Daniel Castro had his day back in court for a resentencing hearing today after an appeals court last year overturned a jury conviction on a count of lying to federal investigators. However after a two hour hearing, U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III saw fit to keep the same sentence; 5 years for extortion with the threat of violence. Castro had begged and pleaded with the judge for leniency. Judge Bartle acknowledged that Castro's 16 months in prison so far may have been productive for generating remorse and contrition, but that the crimes involved still have to be punished and to set a precedence of deterrence against others in law enforcement from committing similar offenses.

Governor Corbett plans to revise his administration's deal with London-based Camelot Global Services to privatize the Pennsylvania Lottery rather than appeal the rejection in court. Last month, Attorney General Kathleen Kane rejected the contract on the grounds that it did not comply with state law or the state constitution. Kane said the contract with Camelot takes away the authority of the legislature to regulate and manage the lottery. Also, allowing the contract to add electronic gaming such as keno, is beyond the scope of the lottery under state law. The current administration began to look for a managing company for the lottery because it does not believe the state could continue to manage the lottery or keep pace with it's projected growth. The proposed contract with Camelot also guarantees a profit of $34 billion over 20 years, with Camelot making up for lottery shortfalls. The Corbett Administration plans to take the deal back, make changes, and then resubmit it to the Attorney General's office. There is no indication what they will do with it, except start with cutbacks to the gambling allowed under the contract.
