Suge Knight Sentenced To 28 Years In Prison For Manslaughter

Marion Hugh'Suge Knight

Update: Suge Knight was sentenced to 28 years in prison on Thursday (October 4) afternoon for the murder of Terry Carter.

The sentence represents the low point of a long decline for Knight, one of the most important figures in the history of hip-hop. He admitted using a "deadly and risky weapon" on Jan 29, 2015 when he ran down two men with his pickup truck outside a hamburger stand in the Los Angeles suburb of Compton, following a heated argument on the set of a commercial for the film "Straight Outta Compton". Knight had been initially charged with murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run for using a pickup truck to run down 55-year-old Terry Carter and Cle "Bone" Sloan in the parking lot of Tam's Burgers in the 1200 block of West Rosecrans Avenue on January 29, 2015.

He pleaded no contest in 1995 and was sentenced to five years' probation for assaulting two rap entertainers at a Hollywood recording studio in 1992. "He also ran over Cle "Bone" Sloan," who was injured but survived.

Before sentencing Knight to 28 years on Thursday, US time, Judge Ronald S. Coen addressed the victim's family: "If it hasn't been said to you by anyone else, let me tell you that my heart goes out you". Two separate criminal cases in which he was charged with robbery and making criminal threats were also dismissed. He also is eligible to shave another 15 percent, or 4.2 years, off his term for good behavior while in prison, meaning he could end up serving almost 20 years before release.

Suge has maintained that he wasn't trying to hurt Sloan or Carter and says he was trying to escape after believing that they were both about to shoot him.

He pleaded no contest on Sept 20 to a charge of manslaughter for a hit-and-run killing.

Shakur died on September 13, 1996 after he was shot six times in Las Vegas. Knight was slightly wounded in the attack.

In 2002, the year after his release from prison, a federal racketeering probe of Knight and his record label was closed with the company pleading guilty to misdemeanor tax charges. He lost control of Death Row after it was forced into bankruptcy.
