Incarcerated rapper Corey "C-Murder" Miller has been sentenced to ten years behind bars in an attempted murder case which stemmed from a 2001 nightclub altercation.
The decision was made Tuesday (August 25) morning in Louisiana.
Eleven days after he was ordered to spend the rest of his life in prison for a Jefferson Parish murder, rapper Corey "C-Murder" Miller was sentenced this morning in connection with two unrelated attempted murders in a Baton Rouge nightclub. Prosecutors, who recommended the sentence, said Miller also gets credit for the time he has been jailed awaiting trial and under house arrest. The amount of time Miller must serve on the sentence has not been calculated. (The Times-Picayune)
He previously pleaded "no contest" to two counts of attempted murder in May.

The attempted murder lawsuit was initially placed on hold for a later date.
A Baton Rouge judge has placed on hold a nightclub owner's lawsuit against Miller until a murder charge against Miller is resolved in Jefferson Parish. He is accused of trying to shoot two men, including the owner of Club Raggs, in August 2001. Club Raggs owner Norman Sparrow sued Miller for damages after the alleged incident. Miller faces attempted second-degree murder charges in Baton Rouge and a second-degree murder charge in Jefferson. State District Judge Kay Bates said the stay is necessary to protect Miller's constitutional right against self-incrimination. (2TheAdvocate)
Murder received a life sentence earlier this month after being convicted for killing a 16 year-old in 2002.
Miller was formally sentenced to life in prison Friday for his conviction on the charge that he murdered a teenager in a Harvey nightclub in 2002. Judge Hans Liljeberg earlier denied a request for a re-trial made on behalf of Miller. Following the announcement of the sentence, Miller's attorney filed a motion to appeal the verdict to the Court of Appeals. (WWLTV News)
