Torence Hatch, better known as Lil Boosie, has been found not guilty in the case of the murder of Terry Boyd, who was shot to death in October 2009. A jury just announced its verdict this evening after six days of hearing witness testimony and arguments from both sides.
The Baton Rouge, La. native was indicted for the charge of first-degree murder of Boyd back in June 2010 and has faced a slew of legal troubles leading up to the jury's verdict today.
In November of last year, he pleaded guilty to drug charges stemming from three separate incidents of trying to bring narcotics into prison. He was sentenced to eight years for those crimes and currently resides in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.
