article imageRapper Lil Boosie released from prison

By Layne Weiss     Mar 6, 2014 in Music
Baton Rouge - Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie is a free man for the first time since 2009. Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch, was released from the Louisiana State Penitentary in Angola Wednesday evening.
WFAB reports that Lil Boosie was released from prison Wednesday at 7:10 p.m. From there, he was transferred to a sheriff's department facility in St. Francesville where he was greeted by friends and family.
Boosie has been in jail since 2009 after pleading guilty to a third-offense marijuana charge. At first, he was sentenced to two-years, but then the judge determined he violated his probation and his sentence was doubled to four years.
The nightmare only got worse. In 2010, Boosie was indicted for first degree murder in the killing of Terry Boyd. He pled guilty to the murder charge.
While serving time for drug charges and awaiting his murder trial, Boosie was accused of plotting to smuggle codeine into the prison.
In November, 2011, Boosie pled guilty to these charges and was sentenced to eight years in prison.
In 2012, Boosie was found not guilty in the first degree murder of Terry Boyd, but he remained locked up as he still had to serve out his eight-year drug-related sentence.
In March 2013, Boosie completed the Angola State prison GED program.
The rapper is scheduled to attend an Atlantic Records press conference Monday (March 10), the International Business Times reports. The invitation for the event features "logos for both Atlantic Records and Trill Entertainment hinting that Boosie has possibly signed with Atlantic, but this has not been confirmed. A representative from Atlantic says Boosie will "clear all that stuff up" for everybody at next Monday's conference.
