Free C-Murder: Kim Kardashian West fights for release of Master P’s brother

Written by on August 17, 2020

 

Kim Kardashian West is proving to be a chip off the old block, continuing to follow in the legal footsteps of her father Robert Kardashian, who was a member of OJ Simpson’s infamous murder defense team. The reality show queen and wife of Kanye West has added Corey Miller — brother of hip hop legend Master P — to the growing list of people she’s fighting to free from incarceration as part of her criminal justice reform initiative.

Miller, a New Orleans rapper and part of his brother’s “No Limit Records” dynasty, was sentenced in 2009 to life in prison after the 2002 shooting death of one of his fans.

Miller has continued to maintain his innocence and, in 2018, two witnesses allegedly confirmed Miller wasn’t the shooter, and confessed they were pressured to lie under oath, WDSU-TV and CNN reported.

Kardashian West posted statements about the case in a series of tweets which read:

“The jury convicted Corey 10-2 and he was sentenced him to life in prison. If his trial was today, the jury would have had to be unanimous for him to be convicted.”

“Since his trial, witnesses have recanted, new evidence of his potential innocence has come to light, and there are claims of jurors being pressured into voting to convict.”

“True justice for the young man requires that the person who actually killed him be held responsible and that Corey Miller be returned home to his kids.”

Kardashian West got involved after R&B singer Monica, who was dating Miller at the time, reached out to her for help.

“@cmurder & I arebonded by truth, honesty & Loyalty! There’s never been a promise broken & I vowed to seek help! After a tearful conversation with @lala she and I spoke to @kimkardashian & I explained why I KNEW Corey was innocent… I shared that There are lots of issues in Corey’s case that speak to his innocence including witnesses recanting their testimony, dna not matching & a 10-2 jury!” the singer posted on Instagram. “Corey deserves to come home to his girls and be the father they need, be the artist & leader he’s always been as well as spread hope to those who have also experienced this.. I’ve locked arms with @kimkardashian, @jessicajackson, @edyhaney and all those who believe in Corey and are ready to fight to #FreeCoreyMiller #FreeCoreyMiller #FreeCoreyMiller”

Kardashian West has made groundbreaking strides in her quest to free the wrongfully convicted and/or person’s with unreasonably harsh sentences and she’s even gotten help from President Donald Trump. In 2018, the president commuted the sentence for Alice Marie Johnson, a first-time nonviolent drug offender who’d been serving a life sentence since 1996, days ater Kardashian West spoke to him on Johnson’s behalf.

In addition, Kardashian West has helped more than a dozen other first-time nonviolent drug offenders, and is studying to become a lawyer.
