A judge who presided over rapper C-MURDER's murder trial has been indicted on corruption charges.

Louisiana state judge ALAN GREEN was indicted last week (ends01OCT04) after a lengthy investigation of the Jefferson Parish courthouse in which authorities say he took more than $20,000 (GBP11,100) in bribes.

C-Murder, brother of rap mogul Master P, is currently facing a mandatory life sentence after being convicted of the shooting death of a teenage boy.
