The Prognosis: The Wire brought into the spotlight many Baltimore citizens with actual ties to the city's crime. Perhaps none was more captivating than Felecia Pearson, who played the hired killer Snoop in the fourth season. With a low, scratchy voice and a swinging gait, Pearson was unlike any woman you'd see on your TV screen. She was magnetic. Which makes watching that season all the more gut-wrenching now, in light of her recent arrest. In March 2011, she was arrested on drug charges in her hometown of Baltimore. Shortly after her arrest, David Simon wrote about working with her and reflected on the charges she faced. She eventually pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute heroin and was given a seven-year suspended prison sentence and three years' probation.
