Tupac Shakur Suge Knight manslaughter death jail sentence hip hop rap Compton

Marion

Rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight pleaded no contest in Los Angeles on Thursday to a charge of manslaughter for a 2015 hit-and-run killing, accepting a 28-year prison sentence under a deal with prosecutors days before his murder trial was set to begin. He is scheduled to be sentenced October 4, according to ABC News.

Knight has been behind bars since January 2015, when he was arrested and charged with intentionally ramming his Ford F-150 pickup into two men in the driveway of Tam's Burgers at Central and East Rosecrans avenues in Compton. Reports state Knight did not want to take the plea deal with media present.

Knight fled the scene, but the incident was captured on surveillance video. Carter died from his injuries.

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.

Knight's lawyers maintain he was acting in self-defence as he fled armed attackers when he ran over Mr Carter and Mr Sloan.

The plea agreement additionally resolves two other 2014 cases, in which he was accused of stealing a camera from a woman and of sending threatening text messages to F. Gary Gray, the director of Straight Outta Compton.

Knight had been facing life in prison.

Knight, co-founder of influential hip-hop label Death Row Records, entered the plea ahead of his scheduled trial on murder charges.
