Jurors Selected For Lil Boosie’s Murder Trial

(AllHipHop News) A jury of five women and two men have been selected in the murder trial of rapper Lil Boosie.

The jurors were confirmed under heavy security yesterday (May 1), by presiding Judge Mike Erwin.

According to The Advocate, the jurors will remain anonymous be sequestered in a hotel starting tomorrow (May 3).

Lil Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, is accused of hiring a teenager named “Marlo” Mike Louding to kill a 35-year-old named Terry Boyd in October 2009.

Louding, who was 16-years-old at the time, is accused of five other murders, including the murder of Christopher “Nussie” Jackson.

The jury selection phase of the trial, which will continue until a total of 12 jurors and two alternates are selected, began under heavy security.

According to Boosie’s attorneys, opening arguments could begin as early as tomorrow.

  • Why the extra security? Is it based on a credible threat to the jury’s safety?

      judge trying to paint that picture like he a MENACE II SOCIETY
      which plays a big part in the jurors psychy during the trial – in turn will make
      it harder for the defense to combat the jurors PREMEDITATED THOUGHTS and some of the evidence, details, rap lyrics, etc.. that are going to spill out during the trial

      its a slam dunk case and life sentencing … they bought to hide that boy!

         so you dont think hes guilty? they are talking about 16 yr old hitmen, extra security MIGHT be needed.

      • nomadic_creole

         Actually, it’s not about whether or not anybody thinks he is guilty. 

        This is about the judge and the state of LA influencing these jury members by making them fear for their life right off the bat, which in turn affects their opinions on Boosie.  The only way the jury should be sequestered is if there is an incident where one of them is directly threatened.  Without evidence of this, there WILL be an appeal with this as a very strong reason for a re-trial, if needed.

        Oh, and I think he did it.  Common knowledge in BR that Boosie and Trill Ent was knocking people off.

      • Fuk anybody who has to say anything negative about boosie. The D.A said their self that they dnt have enough evidence on boosie to covict him to they gone push for his music to get him the life sentence. Be serious. We all know thats not gone work. They may as well lock up every rapper who raps about killing ppl. The man coming home. He just gone have to finish the time on the drug charges n which he has already done most of that time. Its only a matter of time before he’s back on stage doing his thang. FREE BOOSIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        niggah you are stupid!

         Let’s be real though, the laws WANT Boosie.  The difference between everybody else and him, is A) he is in Louisiana, one of the most crooked states in the U.S., and B) he was dumb enough (yea I said it) to keep staying in BR after he blew up and then get caught smuggling shit into prison.  He should have moved to Atlanta or Miami where it’s more friendly to artists. 

        I think he gets convicted, but wins a re-trial probably by pleading out after the b.s. “evidence” is thrown out in appeal.

        Better wise up and get the hell outta the rural south.

      • immackulate

        think who’s guilty my man … the 16 yr old or the rapper?

        for the record YEAH i think they both guilty

        but the extra security is for the JURY and not for the states witness

        or at least thats how the blog read

    • EL_BARK

      Right.

      But the judge prolly figure, boosie being famous might still have enough pull,
      Or clout, that he or an friend might get at a juror or two or several.
      Ya dig me…

      I thinks in louisana the jury doesnt have to be unanimous
      A 10-2 will still get a conviction.
      So he fuk either way.

      However, the judge might be doing boosie a favor in the long run.
      Cause you & i both know. When you rock out & take it to trial.
      The first thing any good lawyer do, is look
      For ever appealable issue.

      They aint even get a jury yet, and he alreasdy got atleast one issue to appeal.
      I surprised his lawyers aint fight harder on this issue alone, and call for an emergency injunction to intervene and let them argrue, the sitting judge is being bias.

      But they prolly keeping it tuck for a rainy day. Lol or in case of conviction.
      This hidden jury bullshet gurantee that the conviction, will get thrown out,
      If his lawyer got a good argrument, in appeals court.

      Sometimes the defense dont show all they cards. Or let shet ride because they know from the gate, they are going to end up in appeals court.

      But remember once the DA show they hand during the trial,
      Its make it easier for the defense in case of a second trial or hung jury.

      Lol cough cough. ie beanie sigel attempt case.

      • nomadic_creole

         Absolutely agree.  It’s showing prejudice towards Boosie.  He definitely got this on appeal.  The #2 thing to bring up in appeal will be the music lyrics being admitted into court.  Freedom of speech…. but it ain’t America, it’s Louisiana, so we’ll see.

        He is still going to lose this first trial, so all the nuthuggers out there who think he will get off easy have another thing coming.  He won’t be out for at least 2 years if he win the appeal.  Then it’s going to be house arrest while the state figures out another way to harass him. 

        Should have gotten the hell outta Louisiana.  Did no one learn anything from the No Limit days when damn near everybody got locked up?

    marlo mike killed boosie’s cousin bleek maybe thats why…

  • Jurors are supposed to be 12 of your peers. By definition the jury should be people that look like him and have similar background. I doubt there are 12 blacks from the hood in the jury. Down with white supremacy, BLACK POWER!!!
