Lil Boosie Files Motion Claiming D.A. Is Out For Revenge
Lil Boosie went on the offensive relating to his first-degree murder charge, claiming that the East Baton Rogue ParishÂ District Attorney was biased over disparaging comments the rapper made in a track just days before he was summoned in front of a grand jury.
Lil Boosie's lawyer Jason Williams claims D.A. Hillar Moore III filed the murder charge against the rapper 10 days within hearing the lyrics contained on the song "F**k 'Em All."
Boosie name checks Moore and accuses the D.A. of having a vendetta for pursuing the drug and murder charge against the rapper, who is also a suspect in as many as five other slayings.
On the track Boosie raps:
“F**k the D.A. and the lawyers/your racist ass is going to hell/You’ll probably be dead when I come out of jail ya old b**ch/ Your d**k can’t even get hard no more, b**ch you need to die/and the prosecutor’s gay/I see that from a mile away”
“Mr. Moore learned of these disparaging comments and within 10 days of hearing these remarks, he prepared a case against Torrence Hatch to bring before a grand jury when the individuals actually responsible for this crime had been in custody for quite some time," Williams said in a motion filed requesting that Moore be removed from the case.
At press time, Lil Boosie, who appeared shackled in court under heavy security last Thursday (February 17th), is being held on a first-degree murder charge for his alleged role in the shooting death of a local rival named Terry Boyd.
Prosecutors claim Lil Boosie paid to have Boyd shot. Also charged in the case are Adrian Pittman and Michael "Marlo Mike," who has been officially charged with six murders.
Moore told Baton Rogue newspaper The Advocate that the case had nothing to do with revenge or race, just simple justice.
“He’s calling me a racist. It (the criminal case against Hatch) has nothing to do with color," Moore told The Advocate. “The indictment had nothing to do with a song. It has to do with dead bodies and victims."
The D.A. has not decided if they will seek the death penalty against Lil Boosie, born Torrance Hatch.
A state judge is scheduled to rule on the motion on June 22nd.
