Lil Boosie Hit With Another Drug Charge For Attempting To Smuggle Codeine Into Jail
Rapper Lil Boosie is facing new drug charges, after being accused of trying to smuggle codeine into Angola State Prison, making it the second time he's been accused of attempting to smuggle contraband into a Louisiana state prison.
According to Baton Rouge's The Advocate, the 28-year-old rapper has been indicted for trying to get codeine syrup into Louisiana State penitentiary at Angola.
In May, Lil Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, was also charged with attempting to smuggle codeine into Dixon correctional Institute at Jackson, where he was previously being held.
The rapper attempted to have an associate mix 1 ounce of codeine syrup with a soft drink, but a confidential source blew the whistle on Lil Boosie's drug smuggling scheme.
Lil Boosie has been charged with one count of criminal conspiracy to take contraband to and from a penal institution, and another count of inciting a felony.
All told the rapper is facing another five years in prison with the new charges.
Additionally Lil Boosie could potentially face the death penalty, for his role in an alleged murder conspiracy that resulted in the death of a 35-year-old named Terry Boyd, in October 2009.
Lil Boosie is charged with first-degree murder, after allegedly paying a 16-year-old named Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding to kill Boyd, who was shot through a window in his house.
Louding is also charged with five other murders including the shooting death of Christopher “Nussie” Jackson, who was also gunned down in 2009.
Although Lil Boosie is not charged in that case, he is suspected of paying Louding to murder Nussie, as the two men were feuding and trading disses on records.
Louding is scheduled to go on trial early next month.
Lil Boosie's mother as also proclaimed her son's innocence. Check out the video below:
