C-Murder's Lawyers Work For Free To Fight For His Appeal
C-Murder's Lawyers In Court Fighting For New Appeal
Corey Miller, professionally known as C-Murder never wanted his rap moniker to be taken so serious that it would result in him spending life in prison.
But the No Limit soldier is serving time behind bars for the murder of Steven Thomas, a 16-year-old who had an alleged altercation with Miller at the nightclub Platinum in 2002.
After being convicted of the murder the first time, Miller was released in 2003 on $500,000 bail when it was revealed that some of the witnesses had their criminal records thrown out to increase their credibility.
In 2009, the prosecutors got their chance to appeal the case and the younger brother of Master P was convicted again although a juror said she was pressed by other jurors to vote for a conviction.
Unfortunately for the artist once known as C-Murder, he spent all his bread on legal fees, but his new attorneys are working for no money to get the case overturned again.
The team of Harvard and New Orleans attorneys stated that there is no physical evidence linking Miller to the crime and they are hoping for another appeal.
