Lil Boosie Indicted for Allegedly Smuggling Drugs into Prison
File this case under "Say No to Drugs."
Rapper Lil Boosie is facing more criminal charges after a grand jury indicted him last Thursday (July 14) for allegedly trying to smuggle drugs into Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.
The New Orleans rapper was charged with one count of criminal conspiracy to take contraband to and from a penal institution, and another count of inciting a felony. The charges stem from a drug sting into Boosie (real name is Torrence Hatch), who allegedly tried to get codeine syrup inside the state prison. If convicted on the charges, the incarcerated rapper will have to serve up to four years in the slammer.
This is the second time Boosie has been accused of attempting to smuggle contraband into a Louisiana state prison. Last July he was indicted for allegedly trying to traffic drugs into Dixon Correctional Institute with help from his girlfriend, a former Dixon guard and others.
Boosie is currently awaiting trial on first-degree murder, in which he faces the death penalty. In that case, the rapper is accused of hiring Michael "Marlo Mike" Louding to kill 35-year-old Terry Boyd, who was shot through a window while inside his New Orleans home.
Boosie's attorney had no comment on his client's latest indictment.
