C-Murder Re-Trial Begins

C-Murder will appear in court today (February 26) to once again face murder charges for the 2002 shooting death of 16-year-old Steve Thomas inside of the Platinum Club in Jefferson Parish, La.. Miller was found guilty of the crime in September of 2003, but the conviction was overturned last year after presiding judge Martha Sassone discovered that prosecutors had withheld relevant background information of certain key witnesses. C-Murder was released from prison and placed on house arrest in March of 2006. In a controversial move, Judge Sassone released the No Limit soldier from home incarceration despite objections from prosecutors who argued that he had violated the terms of the program. The judge then reinstated the order of house arrest in August after a state appeals court ruled that she should have offered prosecutors a chance to argue her decision. In related news, C is also preparing for the release of a new album entitled Screamin’ 4 Vengeance, on which he is said to address the circumstances surrounding his arrest and incarceration. In October Judge Sassone denied a request made by C-Murder’s attorney that would have allowed him to grant interviews in support of the album.

    Homeboys name says it all: C-MURDER
    that knicca is a ruthless icy cold killa. This aint the first incident he had where he was shooting people outside clubs. Like a year before all this went down he tried to buck a nightclub owner and the bouncer because they wanted to frisk his ass before letting him in. Then his gun jammed and he bounced

    Fuck that shit, he should be a free man right now str8^.

    They just said they threw out the conviction because the prosecutors withheld info. I’d have all of the prosecutors disbarred for that bullshit. What happened to double jeopardy??? This whole sitch is fucked. Dude needs a better lawyer. Too bad Masssa P is too busy eatin off his seed to help out his brother. The fucker looks just like em.

  • wacko g

    how the fuck can any of you say he is innocent? thats a fucking joke! he shot that motherfucker and then probley smiled…you say the justice system is just trying to lock up a rich black male? hahaha thats bullshit,they are trying to lock up someone thst was stupid enough to light someone up in public,its his own fault,he will be found quilty and he will go back to jail….it has nothing at all to do with being rich nor black,if a white person did what c murder did,then trust me the white guy would be in jail also,what he needs to do is hit a lic and then leave the country,because he is going back,period..hes guilty,quit trying to make it look like hes not,we all know he is..come on now,his fucking name is c murder

    Dear Unsigned MySpace Rappers,

    No one wants to “get at” your MySpace link or “go listen” to your MySpace demos. Knock it off, it’s embarassing.
