C-Murder Sentenced To Full Time House Arrest, Denies Violating Probation

Rapper

Corey “C. Miller” Miller, formerly known as C-Murder, was placed on

house arrest by a Louisiana state judge after attending a Hurricane Katrina documentary

premiere in New Orleans. Miller

was ordered to remain on full home containment until his second trial on a second-degree

murder charge.Miller,

35, is awaiting a retrial in the 2002 shooting of a teenager, 16, outside a Harvey-area

nightclub in New Orleans. His original conviction was overturned after a judge

ruled that prosecutors had withheld the criminal backgrounds of key state witnesses

from the defense.She

ordered him back on full house after seeing his interview at the Aug. 16 premiere

of Spike Lee’s HBO documentary, When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts

on New Orlean’s based WDSU-TV, claiming he violated the terms of his probation

by attending the premiere after his 10 PM curfew.During

a recent hearing, no evidence was presented suggesting Miller had violated the

order. Miller testified he was at the premiere to meet with Spike Lee about a

project, but had returned home before 10 p.m. Miller

also said he gave more than one interview and did not violate any terms of the

gag order in the case. Sassone

said prosecutors could investigate the matter as long as Miller’s lawyers were

contacted in advance. Sassone apparently planned to give Miller only partial house

arrest, but later changed her mind."You’re

on home incarceration to prepare for a defense, not to have a social life,"

Sassone told Miller. The

judge allowed Miller to attend Sunday church services, but rejected a request

to let him exercise in a park.
