Ex-rap mogul Suge Knight lands 28-year prison sentence

Ex-rap mogul Suge Knight lands 28-year prison sentence

Four days before the scheduled start of his trial last month, the Death Row Records co-founder struck a deal with prosecutors, pleading no contest to running over and killing 55-year-old businessman Terry Carter and capping a dramatic, protracted legal saga.

The judge added an extra five years because Carter's death was deemed "a serious and violent felony" and another year because the vehicle used to run over Carter was categorized as a deadly weapon.

Knight did not speak during the sentencing, other than to waive his presence at a December 10 hearing to determine how much restitution he will have to pay.

His record label helped launch rappers including Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg.

The base model features 32GB of internal storage , while the 4GB RAM variant features memory that has been bumped up to 64GB. There's a better resolution than on the 7 Plus for starters, 2,244×1,080 and a whopping 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.


Carter's loved ones read letters to the court during Thursday's hearing, Fox News reports, with the slain man's daughter, Crystal, referring to Knight as "a disgusting, selfish disgrace to the human species".

"I ask that you sentence this unrepentant, remorseless, cold, callous menace to society to the maximum of 28 years", she said.

As part of the agreement to plead no contest to a single count of voluntary manslaughter, all other charges in the case were dropped. He did not address the court.

Knight the younger also claimed the Illuminati would soon come after him for revealing the truth and said in a video, "Real s**t bro, I'm not f**king playing". Knight's attempts to pursue that money is what he says led to the first attempt on his life-a nightclub shooting in which he was shot seven times. Family members voiced their anger at Knight and said they are haunted by the video of the incident.

Yes, Suge J. Knight is the latest person to claim Shakur-who died in September 1996 after being shot in a drive-by, while in a auto with Suge Knight-is still alive. "I've always wanted justice for my dad, but now we finally got it". Two separate criminal cases in which he was charged with robbery and making criminal threats were also dismissed.

Death Row Records co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight has been sentenced to almost three decades in prison for running a man over during a fight in Los Angeles.

Judge Ronald Coen said Knight had earned the equivalent of 4.2 years credit for time served in pretrial detention.
