Lil Boosie released from prison
BATON ROUGE - Rapper "Lil' Boosie" is being processed out by the Louisiana Department of Corrections. Torrence Hatch was sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to drug charges in 2011.
Prison officials say Hatch was originally scheduled for release on May 20. Due to good behavior and educational credit he earned while in prison, he was eligible for early release.
Hatch was also found not guilty in a trial over a murder-for-hire case two years ago.
He's expected to make an appearance next Monday at an event to be hosted by Atlantic Records in New Orleans.
