C-Murder In The Clear, Judge Dismisses Bid To Jail Rapper Over House Arrest Violations

A Louisiana judge ruled that New Orleans rapper C-Murder can remain on house arrest, after prosecutors pushed to put the rapper behind bars over believed violations.

The Times-Picayune reports that prosecutors David Wolff and Shannon Swain argued that C-Murder, born Corey Miller, left the confines of his grandmother’s house on five occasions and requested to have him jailed. Judge Hans Liljeberg said “he wasn’t 100%” convinced.”

The former No Limit rapper is currently awaiting a retrial for the murder of 16-year-old Steve Thomas in January of 2002. Although originally convicted of second-degree murder charges back in 2003, he was granted a new trial when a separate judge said prosecutors withheld criminal background information to Miller’s lawyers on several key witnesses. In March 2006 he was released on $50,000 bond and put on house arrest.

After several setbacks, Miller’s new trial is scheduled to begin in April. – Elan Mancini

    C-Murder aint gonna get murder. If there’s retrial, it usually means that they found information that could definetly clear someone. But C-Murder will soon be free and Shyne is supposed to get out like in April or May. This is exciting for hip hop
