Lil Boosie Caught Smuggling Codeine Into Prison
Incarcerated Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie continues to bolster his 'Bad Azz' rep by piling on charge after charge, while awaiting trial on an initial first-degree murder charge in an Louisiana prison.
The rapper, born Torrence Hatch, has been charged, along with two other inmates, for attempting to smuggle codeine syrup -- a Southern rap staple -- into the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, where Boosie is currently housed, according to local CBS news affiliate WAFB 9.
Boosie, 28, and two fellow convicts, Titus Franklin and Arthur Stewart, both 27, were reported to Louisiana State Penitentiary detectives and the East Baton Rouge Violent Crimes Unit for conspiracy to smuggle codeine into the prison, and were subsequently busted by an undercover official, and charged with conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution.
Boosie received an additional charge of inciting a felony. The 'Wipe Me Down' rapper already faces possession and distribution charges for marijuana, ecstasy and codeine, and has pleaded not guilty to the murder of a Baton Rouge man named Terry Boyd, for which he may face the death penalty.
