Marion "Suge" Knight Cops Manslaughter Plea, Faces 28 Years In Prison

Suge Knight sentenced to 28 years in jail after admitting manslaughter lailasnews

The plea deal was just unveiled in court, and Suge will get 28 years in prison after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter.

In pleading no contest, equivalent to a guilty plea under California law, the 53-year-old co-founder of influential hip-hop label Death Row Records admitted using a "deadly and unsafe weapon" when he ran down two men with his pickup truck. The two traded blows, and then Knight clipped him with his pick-up truck, in the process running over businessman Terry Carter.

He had been charged with murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run after fleeing the scene following a fight outside a burger stand in the Compton area of LA in January 2015. Knight's extensive criminal record includes serving jail time on three separate occasions for crimes in the late 1980s and early '90s, including armed robbery and assault with a gun.
