Suge Knight Sentenced To 28 Years After No Contest To The Murder Of Guilt
No more indo, and the gin and the juice.
Los Angeles, CA – After three years, the long-Marion "Suge" Knight's murder trial has come to an unceremonious end, with the former Death row Records CEO potentially looking to spend the rest of their days in jail.
The los Angeles Times has learned that the Gentleman, 53, struck an agreement with the prosecutor's office, which resulted in a snapshot of 28 years in prison for the hit-and-run death of Terry Carter during the month of January 2015 the filming of the eventual box-office success of the film, Straight Outta Compton.
Gentleman touched to a charge of involuntary manslaughter, and also admitted that he used his truck as a deadly weapon in that terrible day — the special prosecution for the case.
His sentence will begin on the 4th of October in the Department 101 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office has revealed that the Knight was going to get 11 years for the voluntary manslaughter count, which would double due to a prior conviction under California's three strikes law.
An additional five years also tacked on the deadly weapon allegation, seeing that it is considered a serious and violent crime.
The no-contest plea acquits two of Knight's high-profile criminal cases. In August 2014, he was accused of making criminal threats, and in September 2014, he was accused of stealing a camera from a woman as comedian Katt Williams worked as a spectator. Superior Court judge Ronald S. Coen denied the charges in the judgment.
January 29, 2015, Knight was arrested and charged with intentionally ramming his Ford F-150 pickup in Carter and Cle "Bone" Sloan in the entry way of Compton restaurant Tam's Burgers located in the central and East Rosecrans avenue.
Knight had originally pleaded not guilty as he faces life without the possibility of parole had been convicted.
Deputy District attorney Cynthia Barnes with the Major Crimes Division prosecuted the case.
