Suge Knight agrees to 28 years in prison in friend's death

Carter's widow, Lillian Carter, told the Los Angeles Times that Knight's sentence didn't bring her relief from a legal drama.

Former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight pleaded no contest today to running over a man and killing him in a restaurant parking lot three years ago.

The deal, which was presented in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday, puts to bed a murder case that was almost four years in the making. The 28 years sentence is extraordinarily stiff for a guilty plea for manslaughter. "He also ran over Cle "Bone" Sloan," who was injured but survived. While leaving the set, Knight hit Sloan and ran over Carter.

Knight, sporting a graying beard and wearing an orange jail uniform and dark-rimmed glasses, said little during Thursday's proceedings, mostly giving one- or two-word answers to a series of procedural questions from Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen.

Suge Knight has struck a plea deal in his murder case. Knight was reportedly upset that he was not being paid for the use of his likeness.

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

The 53-year-old was a key player in the gangster rap scene that flourished in the 1990s, and his label once listed Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg among its artists. The reason why his prison sentence is so high is that he was previously convicted for a felony in 1997.

He was sentenced in February 1997 to prison for violating terms of that probation by taking part in a fight at a Las Vegas hotel hours before Shakur was fatally wounded in a drive-by attack as he rode in Knight's vehicle just east of the Las Vegas Strip.
