Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving All Areas of Louisiana

Baton Rouge rapper, Lil Boosie, arrived at district court Tuesday morning for a pre-trial motion and ended up pleading guilty to drug charges.

Lil Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, pleaded guilty to three counts of conspiring to bring drugs into a penal institution. Judge Mike Erwin sentenced him to eight years in prison.

Investigators said he tried to smuggle drugs into Dixon Correctional Center once and into Angola State Penitentiary twice.

After the judge announced the sentencing, Lil Boosie requested drug rehabilitation. Erwin said he would recommend it but could not order it.

Lil Boosie is also charged with first-degree murder in the death of Terry Boyd.  Erwin set the murder trial to begin April 30.

Lil Boosie’s lawyers subpoenaed Michael Louding, also known as Marlo Mike, to testify on Lil Boosie’s behalf after repeatedly trying to get Louding on the stand.

Louding is accused of six separate murders.  Prosecutors said Louding told them Lil Boosie hired him as a hit man.

If you or someone you know has been charged with a drug crime, contact Criminal Defense Attorney Carl Barkemeyer.
