Former rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight faces 28-year sentence for manslaughter

Irene MckinneyOct 05, 2018

The courtroom was filled by almost two dozen relatives of 55-year-old Terry Carter, including a 96-year-old aunt who like many of them cried and consoled one another.

He helped launch some of rap's biggest acts, including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.

Knight listened without reaction as members of the dead man's family addressed the court, describing 55-year-old Terry Carter as a deeply devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend during the hearing.

The victim's daughter Crystal called Knight "a disgusting, selfish disgrace to the human species".

While every accepted chronology of Shakur's last hours on September 7 place him at a Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, later getting into a auto with Knight.

Suge Knight has accepted a plea deal for 28-years after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter in the murder of Terry Carter, according to TMZ.

The son of legendary hip-hop mogul Suge Knight reignited the theory that rapper Tupac Shakur is alive and well living overseas - and he backed up his claim with pictures.

Knight had felony convictions for armed robbery and assault. The onetime college football star and "gangsta" rap pioneer eventually lost control of his label in bankruptcy proceedings.

In January, 2015, Knight had been fighting with a longtime rival, Cle "Bone" Sloan, through the window of his pickup truck outside the burger stand near where promotional filming was being done for the N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton".

Had Knight been convicted of murder and attempted murder as originally charged, he faced a life sentence with no eligibility for parole for 25 years. That doubles the manslaughter sentence and adds an extra six years.

As part of his agreement with prosecutors to plead no contest - the legal equivalent of guilty - to the lesser offense of manslaughter, all other charges in the case were dropped.
