Lousiana based recording artist Lil Boosie (Torence Hatch) was found not guilty reguarding murder charges.
It is reported that the jury deliberated for approximately 90 minutes before handing down its verdict. The prosecution called 27 witnesses whose testimonies included an alleged confession from Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding, which he later recanted during the trial.
The prosecution also presented damning song lyrics but the jury clearly saw things differently.
The defense closed its case yesterday without calling a single witness and argued that their simply was too much “deception” surrounding the circumstances of Terry Boyd’s death. The defense also added that authorities were simply looking for a high profile arrest, telling the jury, “What’s bigger than a rapper going down for murder?”
The jury has been reported of consisting of six Black women, two Black men, three white women and one white man. Hatch will not be released from custody yet. He is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence after pleading guily to separate drug charges late last year:
