C-Murder’s Trial Delayed Until June

C-Murder’s re-trial for the 2002 murder of 16 year-old Steve Thomas was scheduled to begin next month, but has now been delayed until June 9. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Judge Martha Sassone agreed to a joint request from the defense and prosecutor David Wolff to delay jury selection, which was set to begin on February 11. On Tuesday (January 29) Wolff, Sassone and Ron Rakosky—the rapper’s attorney—sat down for a meeting in the judges chambers. During the meeting it was revealed that Rakosky uncovered names on the prosecution’s witness list that he was previously unaware were able to testify. How that relates to the case is unclear, as Sassone has barred both sides from discussing the case with the media. Wolff has also reportedly asked for more time to find a particular witness. The defense and prosecution later made the formal request to delay the trial in court, which Sassone granted. On February 11, the court will hear motions from the defense requesting both a change of venue and a dismissal of the indictment.

    Good to hear my dawg C is getting a fair shake this time. The justice system is so jacked its about time somebody (anybody) will be getting a fair trial. P.S. No news articles about Elliot Wilson’s abrupt firing? Go figure.

  • Kev Lomax

    You right BackDown, the justice system is fucked up…mufucka should already be in jail. Now he just gets a lil more time to pay off and intimidate new witnesses.

    Do the crime, do the time. Stop playin like dude didn’t straight shoot a kid, a fuckin kid, in the face…cause he a gangster.

    • Caine

      Dats right, you was standing right next to him, right? U a hata pimpin…

      • Kev Lomax

        Were you? Aight then, you have as much room to say some shit as I do.

        I guess cause he black and says he innocent, he’s innocent. Like a mufucka just made up some charges so C-Murder the most infamous criminal in the United States can got to jail. Yeah, the federal government is checkin for some no name rappers, it’s all a conspiracy. Fuck outta here.
