Lil Boosie Earns His GED Behind Bars
Born, Torence Hatch, members of Boosie's family attended the cap-and-gown ceremony, commemorating the receipt of his GED.
Boosie, who is serving an eight-year-sentence on drug charges, was absolved of any involvement in a murder that could've had him locked up for life. He has been serving time for more than two years, and in May was found not guilty of killing 35-year-old Terry Boyd. Prosecutors built the case on a confession from alleged hit man Michael "Marlo Mike" Louding (claims which he later abandoned during the trial), and Boosie's violent lyrical content, which was not enough to convince a jury.
Although he was given nearly a decade in custody, Boosie could be released much sooner than expected. According to a Spin interview earlier in the year, he may be paroled as early a 2014.
