BALTIMORE (AP) - An actress who played an assassin for a
Baltimore drug gang in HBO's "The Wire" has pleaded guilty in a
drug conspiracy case.
Thirty-one-year-old Felicia "Snoop" Pearson entered the plea
to conspiracy to distribute heroin Monday, a day before her trial
was set to begin. She was sentenced to three years supervised
probation.
Pearson was one of 64 people charged in March in "Operation
Usual Suspects," a joint state-federal prosecution of an east
Baltimore drug gang.
Pearson's lawyer says she didn't play a significant role in the
alleged conspiracy. But attorney Benjamin C. Sutley says she
decided to enter the plea to rid herself of the burden of dealing
with the charges.
