Rap Mogul Suge Knight has been sentenced to prison for mowing down a person with his car that he was in a confrontation with.
According to Fox News:
Former rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight sentenced to 28 years in state prison on Thursday afternoon at a Los Angeles court hearing that comes nearly four years after he killed businessman Terry Carter and injured another outside a Compton burger stand in 2015..
The 53-year-old Death Row Records co-founder struck a surprise plea deal with prosecutors on Sept. 20, just a few days before he was to have stood trial for murder and attempted murder.
Knight instead pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter and agreed to a prison sentence of 28 years.
During the hearing, members of Carter’s family read emotional letters to the court.
Knight became highly successful during the 1990’s rap craze fueled by the rivalry between east coast and west coast rappers.
