Felecia 'Snoop' Pearson Pleads Not Guilty To Drug Charge

 Rap Daily: Felecia "Snoop" Pearson appeared in court this morning, where she pleaded not guilty to drug conspiracy charges. 

Snoop, who rose to fame as a character on the hit series "The Wire" about the Baltimore drug trade, is accused of helping to distribute heroin. 

She is one of 64 people people charged in a federal investigation dubbed "Operation Usual Suspects." 

Snoop, who is free on $50,000 bond, appeared in Baltimore Circuit Court to address the charges, where she entered into her not guilty plea. 

In a previous statement released Snoop vehemently denied the charges against her. 

“Felicia Pearson has the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty," rep for Pearson said. "In Felicia’s case, she feels that she is being targeted not only because of her portrayal of the memorable character 'Snoop' On HBO’s critically acclaimed series 'The Wire' but also because of where she is from in Baltimore."

Snoop, who served 6 1/2 years for murdering a woman when she was 14, will be tried by a jury on August 9th.
