Rapper Torrence "Lil Boosie" Hatch is a free man tonight. Warden Burl Cain of the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola announced that Lil Boosie was released from prison a little after 7pm on March 5th, 2014.
Boosie has been serving prison time on marijuana possession charges since 2009 on a four-year sentence. In 2011, Hatch pleaded guilty to attempting to smuggle drugs into prison adding eight years to his sentence.
In May 2012, Hatch avoided more time when a jury acquitted him in the 2009 murder of Terry Boyd.
Warden Cain said Mr. Hatch will remain on parole through the end of 2018. Lil' Boosie will hold a press conference March 10th.
