Former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knights was sentenced to 28 years in jail for manslaughter on Thursday, October 4. Knights is responsible for the hit-and-run incident, killing a man after he ran him over with his pickup truck outside a hamburger stand in 2015, according to "Reuters."
Knight, who co-founded the prominent label "Death Row Records," pled no contest on September 20 to one count of voluntary manslaughter for the killing of 55-year-old Terry Carter.
On January 29, 2015, Knight admitted to using a "deadly and dangerous weapon" when he trampled over two men with his truck after a fiery argument while on the set of a TV commercial for the film "Straight Outta Compton." According to reports, Knight was recently out on bail in a robbery case at the time of the manslaughter incident. Knight fled the scene and was later arrested.
Carter died of his injuries and the second man, Cle "Bone" Sloan, survived but was left with a badly injured foot and head injuries.
The current sentencing appears to have prevented Knight from any future recording deals. However, this kind of spotlight isn't anything new for Knight. He has had a history of run-ins with the law.
Knight is known for his hip-hop career as an executive record producer. In the 1990s, he worked alongside Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Tupac Shakur.
