Corey Miller, also known as C-Murder, is renewing his efforts to secure his release from the Louisiana Department of Corrections, where he has been serving a life sentence since 2009 for the murder of 16-year-old Steve Thompson in 2002. Miller’s latest push for freedom includes enlisting the help of attorney Ben Crump and the President of Baton Rouge’s NAACP, Eugene Collins.
In a statement released by the NAACP Louisiana State Conference, President Collins announced his involvement in Miller’s case and pledged to work alongside Miller’s legal team and raise awareness about his case. Collins will be joining forces with FFO Investigations, led by Kasandra Washington, in advocating for Miller’s innocence.
Miller’s fight for justice and equality is also being supported by attorneys Ronald Haley and Lisa Jackson, as well as his manager, Steven Johnson. There has been significant doubt about the fairness of Miller’s trial, and evidence has emerged pointing to his potential innocence.
Miller’s renewed efforts come shortly after he went on a hunger strike to protest the “inhumane” conditions and health standards he’s endured in the Louisiana penal system. Miller has urged the public and the justice system to take a closer look at the evidence and give him the fair trial he deserves.
As the NAACP and Miller’s legal team continue their efforts to secure his release, Miller remains committed to fighting for his freedom and raising awareness about his case.
