C Murder Escapes House Arrest
Posted on July 16, 2006 by Jamie Slaughter
Rapper C Murder has been cleared of his house arrest restriction imposed on him back in May.
A New Orleans judge has allowed C Murder to leave his home despite attempts from the prosecution to inprison the rapper for "violating conditions of his house arrest numerous times."
He is also awaiting a re-trial of the 2003 second degree murder case, which has been an on going battle in itself.
State Judge Martha Sassone implied that the restrictions set upon him were becoming difficult to maintain and so the grip was loosened.
He has been under house arrest since March 20 when he posted $500,000 bail. Under the order of Judge Sassone, Miller is allowed to leave his home, but must stay within Jefferson and Orleans parishes. He must be home from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m, and is barred from drinking alcohol and going to bars. Visitors to his home are also restricted.
Miller is charged with the slaying of 16 year old Steve Thomas, who was fatally shot during an argument outside the now-defunct Platinum Club in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana in January 2002.
