Update: Lil Boosie Violates Probation, Judge Doubles Jail Time
Lil Boosie is behind jail sooner than expected after failing to follow a judge’s instructions.
According to Louisiana news network, WAFB, the Baton Rouge rapper showed up in court on Monday (November 9) for violating the terms of his probation, and a judge sent him directly to jail when his electronic ankle monitor revealed numerous infractions.
As XXLMag.com previously reported, Boosie copped a plea deal back in September for a drugs and weapons charge in 2008. In order to avoid trial in the case, he pled guilty and the judge agreed to only sentence him to two years, with him probably only having to serve one year on good behavior.
Now Boosie’s jail time has doubled, with him having to serve at least two years behind bars.
“I made some very foolish choices, but I was doing the best I could to provide for my family before I went away to jail,” he wrote in a statement. “Clearly I exercised terrible judgment and I hope to get the opportunity to prove that I can make great decisions for my family and the community in the future.”
The Asylum rapper was arrested in Baton Rogue on October 22, 2008 after authorities’ smelled marijuana coming from his car. Upon searching his vehicle, they found a firearm along with a bag of marijuana.
Although he will be spending the next two years locked up, a rep for his label assures fans he has several upcoming projects. Boosie recently put the finishing touches on the feature film: Ghetto Stories: The Movie due out early 2010 and has just wrapped shooting the DVD: Boosie The Last Days. —Elan Mancini
