After Nearly 2 Decades In Prison, Rae Carruth Set To Be Released

Former Carolina Panthers receiver Rae Carruth will walk free Monday

Adams' murder made national headlines, which intensified after Carruth, who had been released on a $3 million bond, violated terms of his release and fled North Carolina. Rudolf said Carruth fled because he was afraid Watkins might shoot him after he had backed out of an agreement to finance a marijuana deal Watkins had asked him to.

"I'm excited about being out of here, but I'm nervous just about how I'll be received by the public", he said. In 1999, Cherica Adams was shot four times while following Carruth to a movie date.

Carruth was convicted by a jury in January 2001 of hiring a hitman to kill 24-year-old Adams, who was seven months pregnant at the time with Carruth's child.

If, for some reason, anyone wanted a Carruth jersey, the NFL Custom Shop is having none of it, TMZ Sports wrote on Monday. He's scheduled to be released from prison in 2046 after taking a second-degree murder plea in 2001.

The unborn baby, Chancellor Lee Adams, survived the shooting but suffered permanent brain damage.

Carruth has served 18 years in the Sampson County Correction Facility for plotting to kill Cherica Adams, the mother of his child.

Many migrants, especially children, are suffering in the hot and humid weather, as they look for sources of food and water. Some paid locals the equivalent of $1.25 United States to ferry them across the muddy waters.

His lawyer hopes that Carruth, who has a now-adult son from a prior relationship, can reach "some sort of reconciliation" with Adams' son, Chancellor, and Saundra Adams, the grandmother who has raised him.

Now, as Carruth is released from prison on October 22, 2018, Saundra Adams says she has mixed feelings about his release and worries about the safety of her grandson Chancellor Lee.

Rae Carruth (shown during a 2005 court appearance) will leave prison Monday. Afterward, they left in separate cars, with Carruth driving ahead of Adams. "And I think this opens the door". "I don't want to harm Ms. Adams".

Carruth's arrest on charges of conspiracy and attempted murder nine days after the shooting sent shockwaves throughout the Panthers organization. "I want the incident to never have happened at all". "I will no longer be pursuing a relationship with Chancellor and Ms. Adams".

He will be a on a nine-month post-release program, according to Higgins.

Carruth was a first-round draft pick of the Carolina Panthers in 1997 following an impressive career as a wideout at the University of Colorado. Carruth is able to leave North Carolina but can not leave the country until his 9-month post-release period is over.
