Lil Boosie pleaded guilty yesterday (November 29) to charges of trying to smuggle drugs into two seperate prisons on three different occasions.
According to various news reports, Boosie tried to smuggle codeine, ecstacy and marijuana into Dixon Correctional Center once and into Angola State Penitentiary twice. Both prisons are in Louisiana.
He was sentenced to eight years by judge Mike Erwin.
Boosie requested he be allowed to undergo drug counseling while in prison. The judge said he would recommend it but could not order it.
"Don’t worry about me I am getting help with my drug addiction and I am accepting full responsibility for the choice I made," Boosie said in a statement to TMZ.
Boosie's troubles are far from over. He still faces a first-degree murder charge in the death of Terry Boyd. That trial has been set for April 30, 2012.
"I am going to fight the false murder charge till the end. Love you all," Boosie told TMZ.
