Man gets prison for threatening district attorney
BATON ROUGE, La. - A Baker man has been sentenced to two years in prison for threatening East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III during a rapper's murder trial last year.
The Advocate reports that 22-year-old Dedrick Deandre Green didn't say anything before state District Judge Richard Anderson sentenced him Friday and ordered him to begin serving his prison term on Wednesday.
Green pleaded guilty in March to public intimidation.
Authorities said Green posted a threatening Twitter message about Moore during the trial of rapper Torence "Lil Boosie" Hatch. Green was arrested in May 2012 after sheriff's deputies found him in the courtroom where Hatch was on trial.
Green allegedly told investigators he was just "fooling around" when he posted the message.
Hatch was acquitted of the murder charge.
