Lil Boosie Found Not Guilty In Murder Trial

BREAKING UPDATE: Trill Fam rapper Lil Boosie avoids facing the death penalty or more time served in the trial for the murder of Terry Boyd.

Earlier this week on Monday May 7, the opening statements in rapper Lil Boosie's trial for the murder or Terry Boyd began. Now, just four days have passed and both the prosecution and defense have announced that they are resting their case.

According to the Advocate, the prosecution announced its intention to rest its case against the Baton Rogue after calling 27 witnesses to the stand. Moments later, the defense team also announced their intention to rest without calling a single witness.

“Based upon the burden of proof lying with the state, the defense rests with the witnesses the state has put on,” said one of Boosie's lawyers Jason Williams.

Following both sides closing their respective cases, the jury called a recess to deliberate. The trial will begin tomorrow Friday May 11 with the closing arguments from both sides.

(May 10)

UPDATE: Moments ago, on May 11, it was reported that Lil Boosie was found not guilty of the murder of Terry Boyd. The Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Network WAFB reports that after a 90 minute jury deliberation that the Trill Fam rapper was released of charges.

There were reportedly family, friends and fans of the Trill Records artist cheering after the verdict outside the courthouse.

    this comeing from a white dud,im a boosie fan and a fan of c-murder, the not guilty verdict is the right choice to bad for c he didnt get that,i think the video of him shooting at club hurt his case but shouldnt have since they were seperate events.i beleive neither rapper pulled the triggers, and finally one of our grettist will be comeing home soon, i support boosie and his crew cant wait for you to blow up the mic.i am curious if webbie really didnt help with the funds or just rumore either way ill lean in direction boosie does hes the one that knows, good job to his lawyers even though it was plain to c. now what with marlo mike, i was trippin when it came out he was snitchin,but then really stood up under oath, i have mixed feelings on his eledged snitching, he just didnt want to go alone since ghost was gone,witch also played a big part. free boosie love ya dawg

    There are so many inconsistincies in this report. Marcus Roach and Melvin Vernell are innocent of any wrong doing! Boosies murder charge, if you want to call it that has nothing to do with TRILL! Please, please get the info straight before you report something! These kind of reports are what gives the media the pleasure of convicting innocent people of crimes they DID NOT COMMIT!!!!

    I won't be surprised if they already have a new investigation on Boosie. Trust me, the state of Louisiana (racist white people) never loses against black people. I guarantee that they have a few tricks up their sleeves.

    Reportedly, FBI agent Antony Jung testified that the FBI had received information that Baton Rouge rapper and Trill recording artist, Torrence Lil Boosie Hatch may have played a role in the February shooting of Chris Nussie Jackson. Reportedly, Jung stated that the bureau received information that rapper Lil Boosie (Hatch) had placed a $30,000 bounty on Chris Nussie Jacksons head. Meanwhile, Trill Entertainment managers Melvin Vernell Jr., of Baton Rouge, and Marcus Roach, of Prairieville, are currently being held in East Baton Rouge Parish Jail in connection with the shooting and attempted murder of rapper Bruce Beelow Moore which dates back to July 4, 2005. District Judge Mike Erwin is expected to make his decision Monday as to whether the two are entitled to bond. Prosecutors are trying to keep the two managers held in jail until they are tried on all charges, claiming that the two are a threat to witnesses and flight risks. When the two were initially arrested in 2005 for the shooting of Moore, they were charged with attempted second-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal use of weapons. The two were released on $50,000 bond and the case was dropped one year later. In May 8, 2009, prosecutors filed a new bill against the two charging them with attempted second-degree murder, illegal use of weapons, aggravated battery, armed robbery, aggravated assault with a firearm and possession of an illegal firearm by a convicted felon, all in connection with the shooting of Moore who survived being shot twice in the face in front of his own business, Shop Smart Music and Fashion. THIS WAS AND IS A FED CASE THAT IS WAY BIGGER THAN THIS I BOOSIE CHARGE!!! BELIEVE THAT!!!

    I know them boys over at Trill ENT hate that they didn't help Lil Boosie. He already had released a diss song about them and was trying to get out his contract. They made a couple hundred thousand off of him, since he has been locked up and never gave his mother a penny. They better offer him a big bag of money, before he gets a lawyer.

    Lil Boosie does not have to do 8 years it's 11 months or shorter!!!!

  • Hip Hop Fan

    Sorry to break the bad news to some people but he will still have to serve his other 8 year sentence when he tried to smuggle drugs into prison. So even though he was found not guilty in the second trial he pleaded guilty to the other charges of drugs. So in the end if he hadn't messed with the drugs in prison he would have came home but now he still has to serve his remaining time. Too bad for Boosie. Oh in case you needed proof, what HipHopDx reported before... Boosie was sentenced to eight years hard labor, though he was credited for time already served. He was accused of trying to smuggle drugs once into Dixon Correctional Facility and twice into Angola State Penitentiary.

    niggas get on the internet and act like they know everything. if you knew everything you wouldnt be blogging on the internet. funny if he was found guilty yall would be saying good. but since he's not guilty its a conspiracy. most of all are just basing your opinions on the fact that you dont like his music. nothing reasonable.. just old hateful ass niggas.

    It's good that he didn't get the death penalty and all, but i'd rather he not make anymore music. We have enough wack rappers out these days as it is.

    i don;t know if he is innocent or not..but just a because a human jury decided he is innocent...it don;t mean GOD HAS...just saying....we will see if he is TRULY innocent or not in due time...cause karma don;t lie...and IT IS ALWAYS ON TIME.

    Well, as much as I hate what he represents and the whole glorifying violence theme, the jury has spoken. I hope this makes him straighten out his life...

      Really says something to the average intelligence of the hip hop audience.

    • EEZY

      Or obviously the state just had a weak case to begin with. Why would anyone snitch and make a deal to actually take their case to trial and put their life in the hands on their peers? And how many suspected murderers are even given the chance to snitch? Unless it's mafia related, not very many. How many young black men are given the chance to snitch their way out of a murder charge? Probably less than 1%. Your comments are way off base man.

    • TEXAS

      Nice try Bitch But if have been following the case like I have you would see all the times the prosecution tried to lock him away like the drug set up in prison and when the prosecution said Lil Boosie is a menace (The whole time called him by his rap name not his real name) who should not be allowed to make music also taking what he said in songs as "evidence" in the crime so yes they really tried to put him away they kept the case going for almost 2 YEARS! trying to give the Death penalty But due to LACK of evidence he will be free after severing time for those bogus drug charges I also think there not done fucking with Lil Boosie they are just waiting for a slip up to lock him up......Now then if you want to talk snitch's look at the Tip case

  • OH HAPPY DAY

    Some of y'all can't read Y'all do see it says "Not Guilty" which means he did not get convicted Boosie coming home in a couple of months

  • wtf

    He's not free, he's still serving a drug charge.

  • ummmmmm

    If he is innocent, then Im glad to see him free. Hopefully a condition of his release will be NEVER RAP AGAIN! That would make it perfect. But since the devil is in charge of this world and Boosie has lyrics that are poisonous to our people, they probably want him in the world continuing to make that music, brainwashing the negro youth. After hearing them lyrics, they couldn't waste this opportunity to continue poisoning our youth.

    Lil Boosie - Something Out Of Nothing

  • Anonymous

    The last witness for the prosecution was Rochelle Wagner, Terry Boyd's sister, who is also the mother of Lil Boosie's child. She testified that she did not know anything about a murder. She said when it came to Terry Boyd and Lil Boosie, the two were not friendly but were not enemies either. The prosecution asked if there was any reason Terry Boyd would want to "jack and slap" Boosie, and Wagner said there was no reason that she knew of.
