Suge Knight pleads to manslaughter over fatal confrontation

Tupac Shakur Suge Knight manslaughter death jail sentence hip hop rap Compton | Daily Star

According to a report in local Los Angeles new station KABC, prosecutors say Knight proceeded to follow the two men to a nearby burger restaurant, where he ran over them with his pickup truck.

Knight's sentence includes 22 years for voluntary manslaughter and six years because this was his third felony.

In this still image from a security video made on January 29, 2015, and provided by the Los Angeles Superior Court where it was entered into evidence, an SUV driven by rap music mogul Marion "Suge" Knight is stopped at the entrance to a fast food restaurant in Compton, Calif., near Los Angeles, as a man approaches the vehicle. The other man, Cle Sloan, suffered injuries to his head and foot. Jury selection for his trial, which could have led to a life sentence, had been scheduled to begin Monday.

The incident happened after an argument over the making of Straight Outta Compton, a biopic about rap group NWA. He spoke only to answer a series of questions from Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen.

Carter's widow, Lillian Carter, told the Los Angeles Times that Knight's sentence didn't bring her relief from a legal drama.

The agreement means prosecutors will recommend he serve 28 years behind bars.

Death Row Records launched stars such as Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur but collapsed in 1996 when Knight was jailed for violating a probation order by beating up a rival in Las Vegas. He had been granted early release in 2001, but was sent back to prison in 2003 after assaulting a parking attendant.

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.
