Hip Hop NC- For many Lil Boosie fans finally some good news, He was found NOT GUILTY of murder charges in a trial that ended in his favor. Torrance “Lil Boosie” Hatch trial ended with an unanimous not-guilty verdict friday afternoon in Baton Rouge, Louisiana’s 19th Judicial District Courthouse.
The following is via TMZ:
Rapper Lil Boosie has been found not guilty of first degree murder … stemming from the shooting death of a 35-year-old man back in 2009.
Boosie was accused of ordering a hit on the victim … but after the jury deliberated for roughly 90 minutes, they decided Boosie was not guilty.
Boosie — who was tried in Baton Rouge, LA — could have faced life in prison if convicted.
During the case, prosecutors tried to argue that lyrics in one of Boosie’s raps proved his role in the murder … but clearly, the jury didn’t buy the argument.
Still, Boosie will not be a free man anytime soon — he’s currently serving an 8-year prison sentence stemming from drug charges.
