Judge Grants C-Murder Permission to Promote Upcoming Album

Louisiana state judge Martha Sassone has granted Corey “C-Murder” Miller permission to promote his upcoming album Screamin’ 4 Vengence and his new novel Death Around the Corner. The ruling marks a reversal of the judge’s previous order barring the rapper from doing any press in support of the project. Miller was convicted of the 2002 murder of Steve Thomas at the Platinum Club in Harvey, Louisiana, but the conviction was overturned last year after it was discovered that prosecutors withheld information about certain key witnesses. In a new request filed last month, attorneys Ron Rakosky and Robert Glass argued that the judge’s gag order conflicts with the defendant’s constitutional right to free speech. Despite objections from Assistant District Attorney Roger Jordan, Sassone granted the request. While Miller will be allowed to grant interviews pertaining to the album, he will remain under house arrest and the judge will have to approve all of his visitors. He is also barred from discussing any aspects of his case. Miller’s retrial on the murder charge was set to begin on February 26, however the Associated Press reports that the trial has not began and no new date has been set.
