Lil Boosie Accused of Sneaking Codeine in Prison

The don’t call him Bad Azz for nothing. Incarcerated rapper Torrence “Lil Boosie” Hatch is being accused of attempting to smuggle codeine syrup into the state Louisiana State Penitentiary.

The Associated Press reports that Louisiana State Police Lt. Doug Cain says Hatch, who is serving time on an unrelated drug charge and awaiting trial on a murder charge, sought help from two fellow Baton Rouge residents in the alleged scheme. Hatch was booked Wednesday on charges of conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution and inciting a felony.

Last year, Hatch was indicted after he allegedly paid someone to kill a 35-year-old man who was fatally shot in his home through a window, authorities said. Two others also face charges in that death.
