#FREEBOOSIE- The defense rests in Lil Boosie case already!
FREE BOOSIE! (if you didn’t know my stance on the situation I just wanted to throw it out there before I began)
Earlier this week on the opening statements in Lil Boosie’s trial for the murder began and just 4 days later, the defense rested its case without calling any witnesses. Closing arguments in the case are set to get underway Friday morning. What!!
According to the Advocate, the prosecution announced their intention to rest their 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.
The trial will begin tomorrow Friday May 11 with the closing arguments from both sides….I don’t know about you but this makes me nervous!
The 29-year-old rapper faces a first-degree murder charge. Prosecutors contend Hatch hired Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding to kill 35-year-old Terry Boyd, who was shot to death through a window while inside his home in 2009. If convicted, Hatch faces life in prison, he is currently serving an eight-year prison term on drug charges and is being held in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.
