A F T E R ONE HOUR DELIBERATION - NOT G U I LT Y VERDICT: THE NEED
FOR PROPER SELECTION OF JURY - ANOTHER NLPA VICTORY!
Any defendant, defense lawyer or a family member who has been
involved in the criminal system understands how important it is to
have an impartial and objective jury selected for the trial. The recent
case of Torrence Hatch aka rapper, Lil' Boosie who was charged with
first degree murder in the State of Louisiana, East Baton Rouge
Parish (Case No. 06-10-0603, 06-10-0605, 06-10-0607, 07-11-0383),
is a perfect example of how important this aspect of criminal defense
is. The acquittals of O.J. Simpson and Michael Jackson are perfect
illustration of how critical it is for a defendant to have an impartial jury
of his peers.
NLPA was hired by Mr. Hatch's mother to assist Lil' Boosie's attorney, * 1 1 /
Martin E. Regan, Jr., Esq., i n preparing f o r trial. I n addition t o
reviewing ten DVD's of witnesses' statements, NLPA also provided a
jury questionnaire and voir dire questions to be used by counsel in selecting the best possible
jurors from the jury pool to ensure that Lil' Boosie would receive a fair trial. This strategy was
successful in helping Lil' Boosie have a jury of his peers who were impartial and willing to give
him a fair hearing. As a result, the jury was able to see through the government's efforts to
incriminate Mr. Hatch with their unfounded allegations and on Friday, May 11, 2012 after six
days of testimony and one hour of deliberations, Torrence Hatch aka Lil' Boosie was found not

Boosie Found Not Guilty of Murder
by Billboard Staff M a y 11, 2012 6.15 EDT
Torrence Hatch, better known as rapper Lir Boosie, has been acquitted of first degree murder charges in a Baton Rouge court
following six days of testimony and only one hour of deliberation from the jury.
On Thursday, the prosecution finished its case and Boosie's defense opted to not call any witnesses, telling NBC33 that they didn't
believe the state had proved his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Supporters outside the court reacted with tears and applause
upon hearing the not guilty verdict.
Boosie was accused of hiring Michael Louding, aka Mario Mike, to kill Terry Boyd in 2009. The prosecution called nearly 30
witnesses during the trial, including Louding who earlier had admitted his involvement to authorities, However, he changed his story
again in court on Monday, saying he had been coerced by detectives to give a confession.
Louding, who is accused of six different murders in Baton Rouge, had earlier told detectives that Lil Boosie paid him $2,800 to
commit the murder.
Prosecutors also made an issue of Boosie's often violent lyrics in his songs and Judge Mike Erwin ruled at a pre-trial hearing on
April 24 that a select few could be used against him. His song, "187," in particular, was under a lot of scrutiny. Lil' Boosie recorded
the controversial track with BG, another Louisiana rapper who has had his fair share of legal trouble.
"Any n a who ever tried to play me, they dead now," Boosie raps in his first verse. The prosecution specifically noted the use of
"187," "murk," and "cake" as slang terms commonly used to describe murder and money. The judge ruled that those three specific
words could be used as evidence against Boosie.
Boosie is currently serving a sentence at Angola correctional facility for a drug charge.
