  • Suge Knight Pleads No Contest to Manslaughter Charges

One of the men, Terry Carter, died from his injuries. Authorities claimed Knight intentionally drove his Truck into Carter and another man, Cle "Bone" Sloan, who was severely injured.

Marion "Suge" Knight (R) and his attorney Thaddeus Culpepper appear in court for a pretrial hearing at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center on 26 February 2016 in Los Angeles. Knight had been facing the possibility of life in prison, and his trial was scheduled to begin Monday with jury selection.

Former hip-hop mogul Suge Knight was sentenced to 28 years in prison Thursday for manslaughter after he pleaded no contest to a 2015 hit-and-run. The deal was presided by Judge Ronald S. Coen who received the agreement from Knight who only uttered "yes".

On Thursday, Knight requested a new attorney, who would be the 15th in the case. He was accused of stealing a camera from a woman and of sending threatening text messages to Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray. Surveillance video of the incident was said to have been ready to play had the case gone to trial. Reports state Knight did not want to take the plea deal with media present.

Knight, 53, was a key player in the gangster rap scene that flourished in the 1990s, and his label once listed Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg among its artists.

In 1997, he was sentenced to nine years in prison after violating his probation stemming from an earlier assault charge. Both rap murders remain unsolved.

The following year, a federal racketeering probe of Knight and his record label, stemming from allegations of murder, drug trafficking, money laundering and gun running, was closed with the company pleading guilty to misdemeanor tax charges.
