BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — A Baton Rouge man has pled guilty after making inappropriate tweets during the murder trial for rapper Lil’ Boosie.
Dedrick Green pled guilty to public intimidation today, Monday, March 11, in federal court.
Green was charged with making inappropriate tweets that threatened District Attorney Hillar Moore.
The message was sent on Saturday, May 5, 2012 shortly before 4:00 p.m. and the first post read, “I got a sniper rifle for Hillar Moore when he walk out of the court house.”
A second message was posted soon thereafter that reflected a similar statement without mentioning Hillar Moore.
The public intimidation charge Green pled guilty to is a felony, so he could face up to five years in prison.
Sentencing will be held on June 21, 2013.
