According to his lawyers, Boosie may soon be a free man.
Good new, folks. According to journalist Jeff Weiss, who's been covering Lil Boosie's trial for Rolling Stone, it looks the Louisiana emcee will be coming home in no more than five months' time. Although no official date has been set, the approximation was officially announced by his attorneys.
In 2011, Boosie began serving an eight-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to drug charges stemming from an attempt to smuggle marijuana, ecstasy and codeine into jail. Later, in 2012, he was found not guilty in the first-degree murder of Terry Boyd, although the individual who Boosie allegedly hired to murder Boyd (17-year-old Michael "Marlo Mike" Louding) is still facing murder charges.
Boosie's sentence may have been cut short due to his good behavior, seeing as he recently finished the prison's GED program.
