A case of life imitating art gone wrong as HBO’s “The Wire‘s” Felicia “Snoop” Pearson plead guilty today to conspiring to distribute heroin.
Like her hit TV series, the 31-year-old Pearson was caught by a wiretap in a joint federal-state drug probe of an alleged drug gang.
“Snoop” plead guilty a day before her trial was set to begin and Judge Lawrence Fletcher-Hill accepted the plea, suspending a seven-year sentence with credit for time served and ordering three years of supervised probation with provisions for out-of-state travel for work.
Pearson can now move on with her acting career.
Pearson said she knows everyone in Baltimore. Asked how she’ll avoid falling into the same situation in the future, Pearson said, “I’m moving to L.A.”
