Man admits making threats during rapper's trial

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A 22-year-old Baker man has pleaded guilty to threatening to shoot the East Baton Rouge Parish district attorney and shoot up the courthouse during last year's trial of rapper Torence "Lil Boosie" Hatch.

Dedrick Deandre Green pleaded guilty on Monday to public intimidation and is to be sentenced June 21.

He was accused of threatening on Twitter to shoot District Attorney Hillar Moore outside the court where Hatch was on trial May 5. He also wrote that Hatch should be freed before Green shot the "court house up." He was arrested two days later, in the courtroom during the trial.

Hatch was charged with murder but was acquitted.

An affidavit of probable cause says Green admitted the tweets but said he was just "fooling around."
