Jailed Southern rapper Torence Hatch aka Lil Boosie has been found not guilty of murder. The successful Baton Rouge rapper has been in prison since November 2009. In October 2009, Lil Boosie was accused of paying Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding, the-17, now 19, to kill Terry Boyd because Boosie allegedly discovered from an inmate that Boyd had planned to an attack on him. After about an hour of deliberating, Boosie has been found NOT guilty. Below is how TMZ is reporting the story.
“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.”-TMZ
