C-Murder has been released on bail after he was sent to jail last month for violating the terms of his house arrest, according to The Times-Picayune.

Judge Hans Liljeberg sent Murder behind bars on March 9th, because he believed the New Orleans rapper allegedly left his house for about 10 minutes. Murder and his attorney claim that he was actually sleeping at the time and the tracking device used to monitor him malfunctioned.

Murder was released today around noon.

As previously reported C-Murder is being charged for the murder of a 16-year-old in 2002. He is due to stand trial a second time for the charges after the first one was ruled a mistrial. – Evanka Williamson
