Hip Hop Radio | SwurvRadio.com | Las VegasRapper C-Murder’s appeal rejected by High Court – Hip Hop Radio
Corey Miller, better known by his stage name C-Murder, was denied by The Supreme Court today. Miller is serving a life for the 2002 beating andfatal shooting of a fan, 16-year-old Steve Thomas, at a Harvey, Louisiana nightclub.
On August 27, 2009, Ernest Johnson, president of the Louisiana NAACP, requested an investigation into the jury deliberations. C-Murder’s financial woes have reportedly landed him the help of two Harvard attorneys, one of them Ronald Sullivan, who have agreed to assist with his appeal. One of the jurors, Mary Jacob, said that both she and a fellow juror, a 20-year old Xavier student, were verbally abused by fellow jurors for their decision to acquit. According to Jacobs, the abuse resulted in her switching her verdict, saying “They literally made this 20-year-old girl so violently ill, she was shaking so bad.
In 2002, Jerry was recognized by the West Coast Hip Hop Hall of Fame for his contributions to the growth and education of independent artists.
