Ex-Panthers WR Carruth released from prison

Ex-NFL player out of prison after 18 years for murder plot	 	 	 			Rae Carruth

Saundra Adams' daughter Cherica was murdered in 1999, and former National Football League star Rae Carruth was convicted of plotting that murder.

Carruth did not speak to reporters before getting into an awaiting white Chevy Tahoe. Cherica, who was pregnant with Carruth's son, died after hitman Van Brett Watkins - who Carruth hired - shot her four times in November 1999.

The child she was carrying, Chancellor Lee Adams, was delivered by emergency cesarean section but suffers from permanent brain damage and cerebral palsy.

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.

Adams, 24, was following Carruth in a separate vehicle after a movie when Watkins and Kennedy pulled up beside her. Prosecutors said Carruth used his vehicle to block Adams' auto while Watkins opened fire on her.

"I'm excited about just being out of here".

Carruth still claims he wasn't intending to have Adams killed, but has acknowledged a responsibility for what happened to his former girlfriend. "I guess, honestly, I just want to truly be forgiven".

"I let him down as he came into this world and the only way that I can make that right and the only way I can work out my relationship with my son is to be there for him", Carruth wrote. "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.

Watkins is serving a minimum of 40-year sentence and is not scheduled to be released from prison until 2046, while Kennedy and another accomplice Stanley Abraham, have served their time and been released from prison. I have to exist out there and it just seems like there is so much hate and negativity toward me.

"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. I really do. We can talk about how this has affected my life and my family and what it's been like to go through the 19 years. Kennedy, who drove the auto, was released in 2011. He's 44 now and is set to leave the Sampson Correctional Institution in Clinton, North Carolina, a free man Monday. "He will never be raised by a stranger - someone he doesn't know and who tried to kill him".
