Guilty pleas entered on 'Lil Boosie' drug charges
A friend of imprisoned rapper Torence "Lil Boosie" Hatch and a former Dixon Correctional Institute guard have pleaded guilty to charges of conspiring to smuggle drugs into Dixon for Hatch while he was jailed there.
As part of negotiated plea agreements, state District Judge Mike Erwin put Walnita Decuir on active supervised probation for five years and Joshua Wilson on unsupervised probation for six months.
The Advocate reports Decuir pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony drug charges stemming from two separate indictments. Wilson, who was named in one of the indictments, pleaded guilty to a reduced misdemeanor charge of interfering with a law enforcement investigation.
Hatch pleaded guilty in November to a number of drug-related charges and was sentenced to eight years in prison.
