Suge Knight Will Serve 28 Years In Prison Over A Fatal Hit-And-Run

The charge relates to an incident in January 2015 in Compton, a suburb of Los Angeles.

Knight and Cle "Bone" Sloan, a consultant on the N.W.A biopic "Straight Outta Compton", were involved in the fistfight which ended up with Knight clipping Mr Sloan with his pickup track.

One of the victims, 55-year-old Terry Carter, later died of his injuries.

Had Knight been convicted of murder and attempted murder as originally charged, he would have faced a mandatory sentence of 25 years to life in prison. 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.

Knight's attorneys had argued he was fleeing armed attackers.

TMZ reports Knight plead no contest to a charge of voluntary manslaughter, for which he will serve a total of 28 years. He will be formally sentenced on October 4th.
