An actress who appeared on HBO’s "The Wire" has pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute heroin, reports the Associated Press.
Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, 31, entered the plea in Baltimore a day before her trial was slated to begin. Judge Lawrence Fletcher-Hill accepted her plea and suspended a seven-year sentence with credit for time served. He also ordered three years of supervised probation with provisions for out-of-state travel for work.
The plea will enable Pearson to continue with her acting career, according to her attorney.
"I can’t say she would have been found not guilty," her lawyer said, outside the courthouse. Pearson interrupted, saying, "I would have been found not guilty," the story says.
She added that she’s moving to Los Angeles and wrote on Twitter, "I’m FREE," the article adds.
