Lousianna rapper Lil’ Boosie has been slapped with a two-year prison sentence for third-offense drug charges.
WBRZ reports that the sentence is part of a plea deal that requires him to serve at least one year behind bars. Boosie had originally been givem 10 years in prison, but prosecutors asked for eight of those years to be suspended. In exchange, Boosie pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana Tuesday.
Under the deal, the rapper will be on supervised probation for two to five years after he gets out of prison.
Boosie’s case stems from an incident last October when the rapper was pulled over by police who later found a bag of weed, a marijuana cigar and gun in his car. And at a heading last month authorities testified that there was a strong smell of pot coming from his vehicle when they pulled him over.
Judge Chip Moore set sentencing for November 9 and told Boosie to steer clear of drugs, weapons and convicted felons until then. He warned that the rapper’s punishement could be made much worse if he’s gets arrested again, tests positive for drugs, or pulls a no-show at sentencing.
