Rae Carruth is lucky man.
He arranged for his pregnant girlfriend to be murdered. Because of his actions she is dead and his child suffered brain damage. There is no way he should ever be let out of jail, but unfortunately he will be.
In an act of arrogance he tried to get release sooner, but his appeal was denied. ProFootballTalk.com has the details.
Former Panthers receiver Rae Carruth has lost an appeal of his conviction for plotting to murder his pregnant girlfriend after a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against him Tuesday.
Carruth’s appeal was based on the trial court’s decision to admit evidence of certain statements made by his girlfriend, Cherica Adams, before she died. Although Adams never got out of the hospital after Carruth arranged for her to be gunned down, she did live long enough to make a 911 call implicating Carruth, to write a note to a police officer saying she suspected Carruth, and to nod her head yes when an officer asked if she thought Carruth was behind the shooting.
Carruth is scheduled to be released in 2018.
I feel sorry his son to have such a coward of a father.
