Former Carolina Panthers Receiver Rae Carruth Will Be Released From Prison After 18 Years For The Shooting Death Of His Pregnant Girlfriend, Cherica Adams

That's a far cry from the four-year, $US3.7 million contract Carruth signed with the Panthers after being drafted - although he never collected all of that money since he was released in the third year of his deal. Carruth was seen being escorted out of the Sampson Correctional Facility in North Carolina, while an SUV was waiting to take him away.

Rae Carruth - the piece of garbage National Football League star WR who hired a hitman to kill his pregnant girlfriend - was released from prison Monday morning, 19 years after the deadly incident.

In 2003, Adams was awarded almost $5.8 million in damages in a wrongful death lawsuit, but she said she's received hardly any money from that judgment since the four men convicted in the plot have been imprisoned or unemployed since that time.

Carruth was found guilty of orchestrating a plot to kill Cherica Adams on November 16, 1999, in Charlotte, North Carolina, to avoid paying child support.

Carruth was found guilty of multiple charges relating to the murder of Cherica Adams in 2001 and was sentenced to a minimum of 18 years.

His son, Chancellor Lee Adams survived the shooting in his mother's womb, and turns 19 next month. Doctors were able to perform an emergency cesarean section to save the baby, but Adams died four weeks after the shooting.

Carruth still claims he wasn't intending to have Adams killed, but acknowledges a responsibility for what happened. "I'm nervous just about how I'll be received by the public", Carruth said in an phone interview with ABC affiliate WSOC-TV on Sunday. I still have to live. "And I want still for him to meet his son".

Carruth apologized for his role in the murder and has said that he wants a relationship with his son.

"He's matured. He's a lot more introspective than he used to be, and I think he wants to get out of North Carolina", he said. Michael Kennedy, who drove Watkins to commit the murder, was released from prison in 2011. "I will no longer be pursuing a relationship with Chancellor and Ms. Adams. I promise to leave them be, which I now see is in everyone's best interest".
