A woman who played a Baltimore drug gang assassin in HBO’s “The Wire” entered a plea in a drug conspiracy case.
Felicia “Snoop” Pearson’s attorney says she pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy to distribute heroin, a misdemeanor. Her trial is set to begin Tuesday (Aug 09).
Pearson is one of 64 people charged in March in “Operation Usual Suspects,” a joint state-federal prosecution of an alleged east Baltimore drug gang.
Attorney Benjamin Sutley says Pearson, 32, wants closure in the matter. Sutley expects Pearson to receive probation and says he will ask the judge to allow her to travel out of the state to pursue her acting career.
