In the midst of legal troubles that could possibly lead him to some serious jail time, New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne has hired a former FBI Geneticist, to assist in the gun charges he is currently facing in New York.

According to the New York Post Wayne hired former FBI Geneticist Bruce Budowle to challenge the DNA results which connected him to the .40 caliber handgun that was found in his tour bus in 2007 after a performance with Queens rapper Ja Rule.

Budowle will reportedly argue that the prosecution may have used an unreliable method for testing the weapon for the DNA.

Budowle was previously active when he testified on behalf of prosecutors in the murder trial of Scott Peterson.

Wayne’s defense have dismissed the claims from the arresting officer that they smelled marijuana in the bus, which is what incited the search of the tour bus.

Wayne has pleaded not guilty to two felony charges of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.

If He is convicted by New York State Law he could face up to three years in prison, along with other fines.
