C-Murder Sued For $1.1 Million
Jailed-for-lifer, C-Murder, was sued for by his victim’s family according The Advocate reports, and they won. The rapper is being ordered now by a Louisiana judge to pay up $1.1 Million, pronto. Corey Miller, the rapper known as “C-Murder” who is serving a life sentence for killing a teenager at a nightclub back in 2002.
In 2013, a civil court found Miller liable for the killing of Steve Thomas. On Wednesday, the judge ordered him to pay $500,000 for each of Thomas’ parents, $150,000 to account for the suffering that the 16 year-old experienced during the hour he lived after being shot. The suit also includes the $4,492 for the funeral costs.
Where is supposed to get that kind of money in prison?? The family attorney says the family is seeking closure through the settlement.
“For my clients, it’s been a 15-year odyssey,” Mustian said after the ruling. “They’ve been through a great deal, and it means a lot to us to bring some closure to this.”
C-Murder still maintains he’s innocent while serving his sentence in Louisiana State Prison.
