Lil Boosie Indicted On Charge Of Trying To Smuggle Codeine Into Prison

The incarcerated rapper has another charge on top of his first-degree murder charge.
Lil Boosie was indicted yesterday and accused of trying to smuggle codeine into a second state prison. According to the Baton Rouge Advocate, the 28-year-old tried to get the drugs into the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.
The indictment stems from an arrest on May 25th by Louisiana State Police. The arresting officers claim that Boosie was working with two local men - Titus Franklin and Arthur Stewart - to get codeine into the prison. Both men were indicted alongside Boosie, who was indicted on "one count of criminal conspiracy to take contraband to and from a penal institution and another count of inciting a felony. The penalties could add an additional two to four years to Boosie's sentence.
The indictment is another blow to Boosie, who is currently awaiting trial on his first-degree murder charge. The District Attorney's Office is currently undecided on whether to seek the death penalty for Boosie in the case.
