The talented rapper and actor has a net worth of $100 thousand dollars. He has earned all this net worth from his career as an actor, rapper, author, and songwriter as well. He has also worked hard for his career.
Talking about his relationships, he dated twice with Monica Arnold (1997 – 1998) and Trina (2002 – 2003). He was previously the husband of Dionne Miller (1999-2001). The icon’s oldest daughter is Alexis Miller. He is currently serving a life sentence in prison for murder. We can see how much he loves his daughter and his ex-girlfriend, Monica Arnold. Miller and his daughter have not reunited for so many years and he is missing his daughter.
In September 2003, Miller convicted of January 18, 2002, beating and fatal shooting of a fan, 16-year-old Steve Thomas, at the Platinum Club, a now-closed nightclub in Harvey, Louisiana. Miller was arrested in the early hours of January 19th for causing a disturbance at the House of Blues in New Orleans. Then, he was indicted on February 28, 2002. While awaiting re-trial Miller was under house arrest. On March 13, 2007, Sassone granted Miller’s request to work on his music career on a per-request basis, but denied his request for a 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. curfew.
Sassone’s rulings in the case became an issue in her failed 2008 bid for re-election. Sassone was defeated by Judge Ellen Kovach; prosecutors subsequently renewed a request to have Miller returned to jail. During January 2009, Miller was confined to his residence on house arrest, and could only leave for a documented medical emergency. On May 27, 2009, Miller pleaded no contest to two counts of attempted second-degree murder. These charges stem from a 2001 incident in Baton Rouge in which Miller fired one shot, after which it jammed, from a semi-automatic pistol at the owner and bouncer of a night club who refused to allow Miller to enter the business with the gun.
On August 5, 2009, the murder trial began. The father of the victim spoke of his son being a fan of C-Murder before the incident. On August 10, 2009, the jury reported being deadlocked, but Judge Hans Liljeberg instructed them to attempt to resolve the deadlock. Three hours later, the jury returned to announce it had reached a 10–2 guilty verdict. The judge suspected that, given the deadlock announced earlier followed by the quick reversal, one of the jurors decided to switch under pressure to end the trial and instructed the jury to go back and deliberate on the case longer.
C-Murder was sentenced on August 14 by District Judge Hans Liljeberg to mandatory life imprisonment. On August 27, 2009, Ernest Johnson, president of the Louisiana NAACP, requested an investigation into the jury deliberations. As a result, Miller appealed the conviction. Then, on February 19, 2013, Miller’s final appeal rejected by the Supreme Court. After a jury voted 10–2 to convict Miller, Miller’s attorneys argued that because federal juries must reach unanimous verdicts in criminal cases, Miller should have not been convicted in Louisiana.
On April 2, 2014, Miller’s attorney, Rachel Conner, filed a post-conviction relief application in state court in Gretna. She raised 10 points to support her assertion that her client received no fair trial. Conner said she plans to raise additional points. On June 26, 2018, Kenneth Jordan, a key witness in Miller’s 2009 trial, recanted his testimony, saying he was pressured by detectives to testify against Miller or he himself would have faced a 10-year prison sentence for unrelated criminal charges. Then, on July 6, another witness, Darnell Jordan, recanted his testimony, saying he detained and locked in a hotel room by police for refusing to testify against Miller.
