The newly freed Lil Boosie spoke to Rap Radar yesterday after his press conference in New Orleans. After spending 5 years in prison he spoke about his time in jail, losing his best friends and recording new music.
Lil Boosie has been found not guilty in the murder of Terry Boyd. Boosie was accused of hiring a man to murder Boyd back in 2009. Throughout the trial the prosecution tried to use Boosie’s lyrics against him. It clearly didn’t work. The jury of 9 women and 3 men deliberated for about 1 hour before returning with their not guilty verdict.
If convicted, Boosie could’ve spent his life in prison for the murder of Boyd. But don’t expect Boosie to come home any time soon. He’s currently serving 8 years for drug charges.
Prosecutors have begun the jury selection process for Lil Boosie’s murder trial. 700 people will be summoned to court, and out of the 700, only 12 jurors will be selected. Security for the trial will be extra tight. Press conferences will be held inside the courthouse, and jurors will be kept away in hotels to keep them safe.
Lil Boosie is on trial for the murder of Terrence Boyd. Prosecutors believe Boosie hired Michael Loudon to murder Boyd in 2009. Although Boosie no longer faces the death penalty, life in prison is still on the table.
