Federal Court Upholds C-Murder's Murder Conviction

A federal judge has upheld C-Murder's murder conviction despite recantations by two key witnesses who now claim their testimony implicating the rapper was false.

The November 13 ruling by U.S. District Judge Sarah S. Vance denies a habeas petition by C-Murder's attorneys, which sought to overturn his 2009 conviction of murdering 16-year-old Steve Thomas.

Thomas was shot and ki1led at the Platinum Club in New Orleans on the early morning of January 12, 2002.

Vance's ruling upholds a state court decision, which found that two witnesses' attempts to recant their testimony were "suspect and not reliable," given their multiple prior identifications as C-Murder as the shooter. In her 47 page decision, Vance wrote C-Murder's had the legal burden to "put forth clear and convincing evidence of error in the state courts’ findings of fact, which he has failed to do."

C-Murder was tried twice, convicted in 2009, and sentenced to life in prison. Since his conviction, he has enjoyed public support from many notable celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, who Tweeted in August that she was joining the legal efforts to free him from prison. Kardashian's public statement cited the witnesses' changed statements and said she believes he is innocent.

Thomas, an aspiring rapper who had posters of C-Murder and Master P in his room, was shot and ki1led around 1:00 a.m. inside the club. A security guard named Darnell Jordan would later testify he saw 15-20 people assaulting Thomas and that he saw a flash from C-Murder's hand, presumably from a gunshot.

A second witness, Kenneth Jordan, testified that celebrities were allowed to go around metal detectors at the club and identified C-Murder as the shooter from a photo line up. Both men's testimonies were consistent until 2018 when they signed affidavits recanting their identifications and accusing police investigators of pressuring them.

In 2019, a Jefferson Parish judge ruled against C-Murder and found the recantations were not credible.

C-Murder is appealing Vance's decision to a higher federal court.

It's wild that the legal system can totally disregard a person's recantation.

No, that was a separate incident. Unfortunately C-Murder was on a bender or something at that time and had a problem with shooting up places. The kid got murdered in another incident at a different club on a different night. The one you saw in a video was him mad about getting into the club. The kid got ki1led outside after meeting or doing a rap battle against C-Murder and it got heated apparently. Different situation and there is no video online of the kid getting ki1led.

Someone who “ had a problem with shooting up places “ needs to be in jail for life with no parole
