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

The rap mogul, whose label once listed Dr Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg, pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in exchange for the prison term.

Knight was facing murder, attempted murder, and hit-and-run charges stemming from an incident that took place in January 2015 outside Tam's Burgers in Compton. Authorities claimed Knight intentionally drove his Truck into Carter and another man, Cle "Bone" Sloan, who was severely injured. One of the men struck, Terry Carter, died from his injuries.

As part of the agreement, Knight has also been absolved in two other cases from 2014.

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

The deal, in which Knight admitted using a "deadly and unsafe weapon" when he ran down two men with his vehicle, calls for him to serve 22 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter with a further six years added because of the United States "three-strikes" law relating to repeated violations.

According to the sheriff's department, Knight reversed over the men and hit them again as he drove off.

Knight fled the scene, but the incident was captured on surveillance video. Knight lost control of the company after it was forced into bankruptcy.

Knight entered his plea to one count of voluntary manslaughter and admitted a special allegation that he used a deadly weapon, a truck.

Knight was the one driving the vehicle the night that Shakur was murdered in a drive-by shooting in 1996. He will be formally sentenced on October 4th.
