EXCLUSIVE: Another C-Murder Witness Recants; Seeks Protection From Local Cops

Another witness claims he was forced into testifying against C-Murder.

(AllHipHop News) Another key witness in C-Murder's case has come forward to recant his testimony.

Last week, a man named Kenneth Jordan admitted he lied under oath during C-Murder's trials, after cops threatened him with arrest.

Another man named Darnell Jordan (no relation) also gave testimony during C-Murder's trial.

But Darnell Jordan recently filed an affidavit claiming police also pressured him into identifying the rapper as the gunman.

Darnell Jordan originally testified that he helped break up a disturbance between C-Murder, and a 16-year-old named Steven Thomas, who was shot to death inside of Platinum in 2002.

Prosecutors used Darnell Jordan's statements connecting C-Murder to the shooting during both trials.

After two mistrials, C-Murder, was eventually convicted of the crime in 2009, and automatically sentenced to life in prison, without parole.

"I was the bouncer at the Platinum Club. I called the police the night of the incident. If I had seen C-Murder shoot that guy I would have said it on the 911 call," Darnell Jordan said.

"I remember that they asked me if Corey Miller did the murder. My very first statement to them was C-Murder didn't do this. They tricked me, I wasn't signing the photo to ID the shooter. I signed it because they told me to. They got me to ID C-Murder's picture and sign it," Darnell Jordan continued.

Darnell Jordan claims he did not want to testify at C-Murder's first trial, so he skipped the state of Louisiana and headed to California.

But police caught up with him, shackled him and shipped Jordan back to New Orleans.

Darnell Jordan claims he was sequestered in a hotel for a week, when a detective (Donald Clogher) finally came in and forced him to sign a statement with words he maintains he never said.

According to Darnell Jordan, he was not able to fully tell his side of the story in court, and claims he saw the gun flash come from the opposite side of the room where C-Murder was standing, meaning the rap star could not have been the shooter.

The bouncer said he also frisked C-Murder, who was free of any contraband, including a gun.

During the second trial, the police came to Darnell Jordan's mother-in-law's house with their guns drawn.

Darnell Jordan says he was sent to solitary confinement in jail for a few days, and then sent to another hotel room, where he was not allowed to speak to anyone but his wife, as the trial took place.

Lawyers for C-Murder have maintained that each one of his trials has been tainted by shady prosecutors, unreliable witnesses and a juror who admitted she was pressured to find the rap star guilty.

Last week, witness Kenneth Jordan also recanted his testimony in an affidavit, and went public with his claims during an episode of "Reasonable Doubt," which aired last week on the ID Channel.

Darnell Jordan, who is pictured in the above clip next to Kenneth Jordan, has decided to come forward, but he alleges the police have threatened him not to change his testimony.

"I feel that I need protection from the cops and the District Attorney's office... I believe they will retaliate on me for talking..." Darnell Jordan stated.

So it took 9 years of this man being in that cage for these dudes to step forward? Why the sudden courage?
