Lil Boosie to serve 100 hours of community service during 4 year probation

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Lil Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, was sentenced in a Baton Rouge courthouse to serve 100 hours of community service and submit to random drug tests during his four-year probation period.

District Judge Chip Moore sentenced the rapper on Thursday, March 13.

"I really think that his future will be quite bright and he will eventually be making Baton Rouge proud," Louis Unglesby, Hatch's lawyer, said.

Hatch was released from prison March 5, 2014 after serving four years in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola on a drug conviction. During his time in prison he completed his GED.

"He certainly got all the benefits that the prison system has to offer and ideally he will have a very successful career that will benefit everyone," Unglesby said.

On Monday, March 10 he spoke to the press regarding his future in the music industry. The rapper signed a deal with Atlantic Records. He revealed his plans to leave his hometown of Baton Rouge and take up residence in New Orleans.

"He's going to have to give speeches in New Orleans," Unglesby explained. "The judge feels like he could be a positive influence on young children in terms of the necessity of children avoiding some of the trouble they find themselves getting into periodically."
