Lil Boosie’s fate now lies in the hands of a Louisiana jury.
Both the prosecution and the defense concluded their cases in the rapper’s murder trial Thursday (May 10). Over the six-day trial, prosecutors called a total of 27 witnesses to the stand, while Boosie’s defense team rested their case without calling a witness. Boosie’s attorney Jason Williams explains,
“Based upon the burden of proof lying with the state, the defense rests with the witnesses the state has put on”
Jurors opted to recess rather than go straight into deliberations, and will return today to hear closing arguments.
