Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie was acquitted of murder yesterday and as soon as he finishes his eight year prison sentence on unrelated drug charges he's coming home...
Torence "Lil Boosie" Hatch, who pleaded guilty to setting up a drug smuggling ring inside Angola prison while awaiting his murder trial [click here if you missed that] was found not guilty of hiring a hitman to kill his baby mama's brother.
The entire case hinged on testimony from alleged hitman Michael 'Marlo Mike' Louding who originally claimed Boosie ordered the hit, but testified in court that his taped confession [which was lost and not played during the trial] was coerced by police officers who threatened to harm his family.

Following the verdict, more than 100 people celebrated in a small park in front of the courthouse, laughing, slapping hands and dancing around. When Hatch's team of defense attorneys appeared, the crowd loudly chanted "Boosie, Boosie, Boosie." When the attorneys began to descend the court house's steps, some in the crowd shrieked and mobbed them, congratulating them on doing a good job.
