Supreme Court Delays Ruling In C-Murder's Appeal Case

The Supreme Court has delayed its ruling in C-Murder's ongoing appeal case for murder.

Over the past year, No Limit rapper C-Murder has been attempting to appeal his now-decade old murder conviction. However, in a recent report from NOLA, it appears that the emcee may have to wait even longer for the courts deliver a ruling in his appeal.

According to the report, the Supreme Court failed to deliver a ruling on the emcee's appeal trial by the expected November 26 date. Additionally, he courts failed to give any specific reason as to why the case was temporarily put on the back burner.

The case originally dates back to the 2002 murder of a 16-year-old outside a New Orleans, Louisiana nightclub. Although C-Murder has proclaimed his innocence, he was sentenced to life in prison in 2009 by a 10-2 jury vote for conviction.

This isn't the first roadblock that the New Orleans rapper has encountered in his case. C-Murder's attorneys argue that the jury's non-unanimous conviction is unconstitutional and violates the 6th and 14th Ammendments' protections for criminal defendants.

If the courts rules in favor of C-Murder, the case could change Louisiana state law, which requires only 10 jury votes to issue a criminal conviction.

    C-Murder was at the helm of the Southern hip-hop movement. He is unfairly lumped into the same category as his brothers. For the record, I think Silkk the Shocker was a good rapper when he started out.
