BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Rapper C-Murder pleaded no contest to two counts of attempted second-degree murder inside a Baton Rouge courtroom Wednesday morning.
Prosecutors say in August 2001, C-Murder, whose real name is Corey Miller, tried to shoot the owner and a bouncer at "Club Raggs" with a semi-automatic pistol. Owner Norman Sparrow and bouncer Ronnie Williams say Miller pulled the gun from his waistband and tried to shoot them for not letting him in the club with his gun. Police say the pistol jammed.
Since then, Miller has been either behind bars or on house arrest. Attorney Stephen Moore says Wednesday's plea was a deal for Miller. He was sentenced to ten years in prison with credit for time served, which would set him free. "This was a best interest plea," said Moore. "He denies committing the crime, that's why he pled no contest. "However, because the time is already done, there was no reason to take any chance that a jury may find otherwise."
Prosecutor David Caldwell says he's glad it's all over. "We had about 80% of the jury pool who knew who the former 'C Murder' was or had read some coverage either here or in Jefferson Parish," said Caldwell. "So, we had to talk to each one of them individually about what they knew about the case and whether they could be fair."
That's now a moot point, but it may not be over for Corey Miller. He still faces trial in Jefferson Parish on a second-degree murder charge.
