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

Suge Knight Pleads No Contest to Manslaughter Charges

The other man, Cle Sloan, suffered injuries to his head and foot.

Knight, who at the time was out on bail in a robbery case, fled the scene but was later arrested.

Fifty-three-year-old Knight is due to be sentenced on October 4. The plea came days before jury selection was set to begin for the case.

Knight's lawyers previously contended he accidentally struck the two men with his vehicle while trying to flee what he thought was an ambush attempt.

He is alleged to have mowed down two men with his Ford F-150 pickup truck outside a burger stand in the Los Angeles suburb of Compton on January 29, 2015. The incident was captured on videotape by the restaurant's surveillance cameras.

USA may announce new tariffs on import from China
Trump was asked during the meeting whether he was concerned about the impact of the new tariffs on negotiations with China . Corporate executives increasingly think the trade dispute can be resolved only by direct talks between Trump and Xi.

Knight disagreed with the judge's description of one of his previous strikes and put a pause in the proceedings that briefly raised tension in the courtroom. In 1997, he was sentenced to jail for violating that probation after participating in an altercation in Las Vegas that culminated hours later in the fatal shooting of Tupac Shakur while he rode in Knight's auto. Tupac Shakur was in the passenger seat of Knight's auto when he was killed in 1995. Knight, who was at the wheel, was slightly wounded himself.

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

On Thursday, while Coen read legal language about the plea and told Knight he was subject to deportation if he was not a citizen, Knight said "ICE is coming to get me?" to a smattering of laughs. Both rap murders remain unsolved. He had been granted early release in 2001, but was sent back to prison in 2003 after assaulting a parking attendant.

Had Knight been found guilty of murder as originally charged, he would have faced life in prison, prosecutors said. Knight was indicted for making criminal threats in August 2014.
