(AllHipHop News) Rapper Lil Boosie was acquitted of first-degree murder charges today (May 11), by and East Baton Rouge, Louisiana jury.
The rapper was accused of paying a 16-year-old named “Marlo” Michael Louding to shoot and a man named Terry Boyd for $2800.
Prosecutors claimed that Lil Boosie’s lyrics contained hidden admissions, while the defense stated that the rapper was simply playing up a negative image for his hip-hop persona.
The defense relied on the jury to make their decision, without calling a single witness in the case, leaving the burden of proof upon the prosecution.
The anonymous jury deliberated for a little over an hour, before they returned the not guilty verdict.
