Suge Knight sentenced to 28 years in prison

Former gangsta rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight and hip-hop star Dr. Dre

As previously noted, the charges stem from a 2015 incident in which Knight struck and killed Carter with his truck during the production of the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton. "He also ran over Cle "Bone" Sloan," who was injured but survived.

Fifty-three-year-old Knight is due to be sentenced on October 4.

As part of the agreement, the murder charges against Knight, 53, will be dismissed by prosecutors, along with separate criminal cases charging him with robbery and making criminal threats. His attorneys had said he was acting in self-defence and was fleeing armed attackers when he ran over Mr Carter and Mr Sloan.

Knight's sentence includes 22 years for voluntary manslaughter and six years because this was his third felony.

His most recent charges include murder, attempted murder, and hit-and-run after he fled the scene of an altercation outside of a Compton restaurant in 2015.

Several outlets confirmed that the infamous Hip Hop mogul was sentenced to 28 years after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter in the death of Terry Carter. The incident left Sloan hospitalized and Carter dead. Knight lost control of the company after it was forced into bankruptcy.

Knight was the one driving the auto the night that Shakur was murdered in a drive-by shooting in 1996.

Death Row Records launched stars such as Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur but collapsed in 1996 when Knight was jailed for violating a probation order by beating up a rival in Las Vegas.

In 1997, rival rapper Biggie Smalls was shot and Knight was sued for wrongful death.
