Suge Knight Pleads No Contest To Voluntary Manslaughter

Marion

Suge has been behind bars awaiting trial since the 2015 incident.

The plea deal struck in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom calls for Knight, 53, to serve 28 years in state prison.

Several sources tell us the former Death Row Records exec will be in L.A. County Superior Court Thursday afternoon to enter a plea in the murder of Terry Carter.

He is alleged to have mowed down two men with his Ford F-150 pickup truck outside a burger stand in the Los Angeles suburb of Compton on January 29, 2015.

Marion 'Suge' Knight to serve 28 years after plea deal over Compton death

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.

Knight ran over Carter after a fistfight with Compton consultant Cle "Bone" Sloan, whom he also clipped with his truck.

Knight's lawyers maintain he was acting in self-defence as he fled armed attackers when he ran over Mr Carter and Mr Sloan. He originally faced life without the possibility of parole if convicted. Knight lost control of the company after it was forced into bankruptcy. His previous felony convictions include armed robbery and assault with a gun. 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 was sent to prison in February 1997 for violating his parole, getting in a fight at a Las Vegas hotel hours before Tupac was killed in a drive-by - riding in Knight's auto.
