He has faced prison time in the past

Boosie has been in prison on many occasions in the past.

In 2008, he was arrested after police found marijuana and a gun in his car. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two years in prison. However, his sentence was doubled when the judge discovered he violated his probation whilst awaiting sentencing.

Then, in 2010, he was charged with the first-degree murder of Terry Boyd as well as three counts of possession with intent to distribute narcotics, and could have faced the death penalty. However, the judge found him not guilty and he was not jailed.

In 2011, he was then sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of conspiring to smuggle drugs into state prisons. However, in 2012, his attorney argued that he was actually set up, and he was released in 2014.
