Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
On Tuesday, Corey "C-Murder" Miller, rapper and member of his cousin Master P's 1990's southern rap empire, was sentenced to 10 years in jail for the attempted murder of two people in a Baton Rouge night club in 2001. Earlier this month, he got a life sentence for the 2002 murder of a teenager in a Harvey, Louisiana night club.
As reported by the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Miller received the 10 year sentence just weeks after receiving a life sentence for the 2002 murder. One might wonder why another 10 year sentence is needed for a man already sentenced to life. The answer is that prosecutors want to ensure his incarceration even if one or the other of the convictions gets overturned on appeal. And in the case(s) of C-Murder, this concern is particularly apt -- his murder conviction has already been overturned once.
To help sort out C-Murder's murder and attempted murder raps, here is a brief timeline of his cases:
There is little doubt that his second murder conviction will also be challenged. As the Times-Picayune reports, the deciding juror in his second murder trial claims to have voted guilty somewhat against her will after receiving intense pressure from other jurors.
