Trill Ent. Lawyer Indicted for Interfering With Murder Case

Lil BoosieIf you’ve ever seen Peter “P’Ta Mon” John’s advertisements for his legal practice, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that the Baton Rouge lawyer is being indicted for interfering with a criminal case. The gangsta rap-friendly legal practitioner’s ads offer a $500 “Expungement Special” and boast the catchy slogan “No Evidence — No Conviction!”

But John, who calls himself the “The Thugs’ Lawyer,” is finding himself on the other side of the law. He was called into a Baton Rouge court yesterday, and accused of interfering with a criminal probe into the attempted murder case of two Trill Entertainment CEOs — Melvin Vernell Jr. and Marcus Roach. Vernell and Roach allegedly shot rapper Bruce “Beelow” Moore in the face outside of his Baton Rouge record store back in 2005, for bootlegging recordings by Trill Ent. artists Lil Boosie and Webby.

Though the charges against John’s clients were eventually dropped, prosecutors have now switched their focus to John, who is being charged with conspiracy, obstruction of justice, perjury and theft and presenting false information in Vernell and Roach’s defense.

Looks like P’Ta Mon might need a good lawyer.
