BATON ROUGE - A State Police spokesperson said the investigation into threats made against District Attorney Hillar Moore's office is still ongoing, and that it led to more charges against Baton Rouge rapper Torrance Hatch, also known as "Li'l Boosie".

Lt. Doug Cain said Hatch was arrested May 26 in connection with the threats. He is currently serving time for a 2009 drug charge, and was also indicted in a murder-for-hire scheme that led to the death of 35-year-old Terry Boyd in October.

Cain said investigators had deemed the threats "credible", which led them to provide security for the District Attorney's Office.

However, Cain he couldn't go into detail about specifically who from the office was protected, or for how long.
