BATON ROUGE, La. - Baton Rouge rapper Torrence "Lil Boosie" Hatch will serve at least one year in prison after pleading guilty to a third-offense marijuana possession charge.

Hatch told state Judge Chip Moore Tuesday he wanted to get this behind him. The 26-year-old Hatch was scheduled to stand trial next week. An agreement between prosecutors and Hatch's attorneys calls for Hatch to receive a 10-year sentence with all but the first two years suspended. He must serve one of those years.

Hatch will be on active supervised probation for two to five years after he is released from prison. Sentencing is set for Nov. 9. Sheriff's deputies seized a bag of marijuana, a cigar containing the drug, and a gun from a car driven by Hatch on Oct. 22.
