Suge Knight pleads no contest to manslaughter over fatal confrontation

Article Image Suge Knight Reportedly Strikes Plea Deal in Terry Carter Murder Case

Infamous Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight has sensationally agreed to a 28-year prison sentence after previously pleading no contest to vehicular manslaughter over a 2015 hit-and-run incident.

Knight, 53, had faced a murder charge and has been in jail since turning himself in shortly after the January 29, 2015, collision in which his red Ford Raptor pickup plowed into Terry Carter, 55, and 51-year-old Cle "Bone" Sloan, a technical adviser on the movie, who survived.

Knight, 53, is expected to be sentenced to 28 years in prison on October 4 for the 2015 hit-and-run death of Terry Carter.

As part of the agreement the murder charges against Knight will be dismissed by prosecutors, along with separate criminal cases charging him with robbery and making criminal threats.

If Butler is traded, he's eligible next summer to sign the deal he's seeking close to $190 million. The Athletic first reported Butler's trade request.

TMZ reports that the former Death Row exec pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter.

Knight, sporting a graying beard and wearing an orange jail uniform and dark-rimmed glasses, said little during Thursday's proceedings, mostly giving one- or two-word answers to a series of procedural questions from Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen. Cle "Bone" Sloan survived his injuries.

"Straight Outta Compton" tells the story of the rap group N.W.A.

The plea deal gets in just under the wire for Suge Knight as he was scheduled to being trial on September 24.

It says two top officials each from North and South Korea are also attending the summit meeting along with their leaders. About 150 business, entertainment and sports leaders streamed onto the aircraft before it departed.

Knight, who was incarcerated at the time, was named by police a few years later as a suspect in the Wallace slaying but was never charged.

Surveillance video that showed Knight hitting the two men with his truck was likely to play a central role for both sides. He is expected to be sentenced to 28 years in state prison on the charge.

Knight was the one driving the vehicle the night that Shakur was murdered in a drive-by shooting in 1996.

These current charges carried had Knight staring down the barrel of a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
