Felicia “Snoop” Pearson, who played a tomboy assassin on HBO’s crime drama “The Wire,” received three years of supervised probation after she pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy to distribute heroin. In March, Pearson, 31, was among 64 people arrested in an east Baltimore drug sting. According to her lawyer, Benjamin Sutley, the actress had a minimal role in the gang and only entered the plea to get the matter over with (her full sentence was seven years in prison, which the judge suspended, except for five months already served). “She learned a valuable lesson about how some loyalties you keep and others drag you down,” he told Associated Press.
