I'm glad to hear of the repentance and of his relationship with God.
With his release from prison scheduled for later this year, former Panthers wide receiver Rae Carruth wants to apologize to the mother of the girlfriend whose murder he set up. He was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder along with other charges, after he paid a man to shoot Cherica Adams, his eight-months-pregnant girlfriend, who ended up dying a month after her son was delivered via emergency C-section. He was found not guilty of the first-degree murder charge.
The motive of the arranged shooting is unconfirmed, but Carruth has said he was motivated by Adams' reluctance to get an abortion.
Carruth is slated to be released from prison this October. Carruth and Adams' son, Chancellor Lee Adams, was born prematurely due to the shooting and suffers from cerebral palsy due to the shooting.
To raise a special needs child is to dig deep into one's character on a daily, if not hourly, basis. Carruth said he will seek custody of the boy when he is released from prison. For her part, Saundra Adams said Monday that while she wants Carruth to have a role in her grandson's life, the ex-NFL player will never have custody. Carruth penned a 15-page letter to Saundra, telling her that her claims against him are untrue.
In his letter, Carruth told Adams, "For too long, you've used my silence against me, and for once I feel the need to speak to finally speak up for myself and hopefully put an end to this".
"I didn't write this letter in an attempt to win anyone over, especially not the public", Carruth begins. Watkins, who shot Adams multiple times, was sentenced to a minimum of 40 years in prison.
Sort of. "I'm apologizing for the loss of her daughter", he said. If I say publicly, 'Ms. "I ask you to hold him responsible for what he did, for what Cherica saw him do". "And I just want her to know that truly I am sorry for everything". So that's what I'd want to change. His mother would still be here and I wouldn't be where I'm at. "I want the incident to never have happened at all".
Carruth however denies that child support was an issue because he says it was never brought up with Cherica.
But, sometimes, it just better to just shut up.
Which leads to Carruth's letter.
WBTV reports: "While he's only met his son twice, both times in the early years of his life, Carruth has kept a close eye on Chancellor through frequent newspaper and television stories". But according to him, he never broached the subject again once she expressed her desire to keep the child.
Of his desire to eventually gain custody of his son, Carruth said, "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".
