BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie arrived at district court Tuesday morning for a pre-trial motion and ended up pleading guilty to drug charges.
Lil Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, pleaded guilty to three counts of conspiring to bring drugs into a penal institution. Judge Mike Erwin sentenced him to eight years in prison.
Investigators said he tried to smuggle drugs into Dixon Correctional Center once and into Angola State Penitentiary twice.
After the judge announced the sentencing, Lil Boosie requested drug rehab. Erwin said he would recommend it but could not order it.
Supporters for the rapper were seen hanging their heads low once the judge made that statement.
On another note, he walked into the courtroom wearing an expensive pair of Adidas tennis shoes, instead of prison-issued sneakers.
There were about 12 deputies with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office surrounding Lil Boosie while he was in court.
Lil Boosie is also charged with first-degree murder in the death of Terry Boyd.
Prior to the plea, Erwin refused to remove District Attorney Hillar Moore from the case.
Erwin later said the search warrant on Lil Boosie's house stands. He then denied a second warrant suppression. The defense said it plans to appeal.
Erwin set the murder trial to begin April 30.
Lil Boosie's lawyers subpoenaed Michael Louding, also known as Marlo Mike, to testify on Lil Boosie's behalf after repeatedly trying to get Louding on the stand.
Louding's attorney, Margaret Lagatutta, said she will fight the subpoena.
Louding is accused of six separate murders.
Prosecutors said Louding told them he was hired as a hitman by Lil Boosie.
It is unclear if the death penalty is on the table.
