Rap mogul 'Suge' Knight to serve 28 years in murder plea deal

Suge Knight Agrees To A 28 Year Prison Sentence For Vehicular Manslaughter

Suge Knight took a plea deal today (Sept. 20) in his murder case and will now be serving a 28-year jail sentence.

Knight, co-founder of the West coast rap label Death Row Records, was charged in the January 2015 hit-and-run death of Terry Carter after a dispute near the set of a commercial for the film Straight Outta Compton.

Carter was ran over when Suge Knight tried to speed out of the parking lot at Tam's Burgers in Compton where a portion of the movie was being shot.

The gangsta rap mogul entered his no contest plea in Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday. He was accused of stealing a camera from a woman and of sending threatening text messages to Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray. As part of the plea agreement the murder charges will be dismissed by prosecutors, along with other charges against Knight of robbery and making criminal threats. As presented, Knight will serve a total of twenty-eight years in prison.

Delays, detours and drama marked the run-up to Knight's trial, which was expected to begin October 1 under tight security and secrecy.

Brunswick Nuclear Plant shutting down
Brunswick is located about four miles (6.4 kilometers) from the coast and sits about 20 feet (6.1 meters) above sea level. On its current track, the storm will hit the coast on Friday with maximum sustained winds of about 105 miles per hour .

Surveillance video that showed Knight hitting the two men with his truck was likely to play a central role for both sides. The 28 years sentence is extraordinarily stiff for a guilty plea for manslaughter. The court now sees him as a repeat offender.

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

Suge's prior felony convictions also made this sentencing much harsher.

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