Suge Knight to be sentenced to 28 years in prison

Suge Knight to be sentenced to 28 years in prison

Former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight pleaded no contest today to running over a man and killing him in a restaurant parking lot three years ago.

Knight had faced one count of murder for the death of Terry Carter and one count of attempted murder in the case of Cle "Bone" Sloan, who was maimed after Knight allegedly struck the pair with his truck.

Knight is scheduled to be sentenced October 4, and will be given a 28-year sentence under the terms of his plea deal with the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. The plea deal will see Knight serve twenty-two years for the voluntary manslaughter charge, plus an additional six years because it is a third strike violation.

Knight fled the scene, but the incident was captured on surveillance video. It then moves forward, driving over his legs and slams into the other victim, who was killed.

Mr Sloan has denied claims he was carrying a gun during the confrontation.

Knight's lawyers maintain he was acting in self-defence as he fled armed attackers when he ran over Mr Carter and Mr Sloan. Knight lost control of the company after it was forced into bankruptcy. He later pleaded guilty to hitting his girlfriend in an incident in 2008.

That scuffle in September 1996 took place hours before Shakur was shot to death in a drive-by attack while riding in a vehicle with Knight after a Mike Tyson boxing match.

Months later, rap artist Christopher Wallace, known as Notorious B.I.G. and signed to a rival record label, was shot to death in Los Angeles. Knight denied it and the suit was dismissed.
