Former rapper-turned-professional prisoner Corey ‘C-Murder‘ Miller has come to an understanding with prosecutors in his attempted murder case. On Wednesday Miller, the younger brother of entertainment mogul Percy ‘Master P‘ Miller, plead no contest to two counts of attempted second-degree murder in exchange for a 10-year sentence –with consideration for time served he will have met his obligation within a matter of months.
The attempted murder charge steams from a 2001 incident in which Miller, upset at being denied entry into a Baton Rouge nightclub because he refused to be searched by security, tried to shoot the club’s owner. Fortunately the gun jammed and Miller fled the scene, but the entire event was captured by video surveillance.
The 38-year-old Miller was taken into custody by the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office immediately after Judge Tony Marabella entered his plea into the record. He will remain in the sheriff’s custody until he is officially sentenced on August 25.
In the meantime, Miller still faces serious jail time in his upcoming re-trial for the 2002 killing of 16-year-old Steve Thomas at a Jefferson Parish nightclub.
