  • Onetime rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight sentenced to 28 years for manslaughter

Infamous rap mogul Marion Hugh "Suge" Knight, 53, was sentenced to 28 years in prison on Thursday for a 2015 hit-and-run, according to Fox 32 Chicago.

Marion Suge Knight (L), with attorney Albert DeBlanc, pleads no contest to voluntary manslaughter in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday, September 20, 2018.

The prison sentence represents the low point of a long decline for Knight, one of the most important figures in the history of hip-hop. At his pinnacle in the mid-1990s, he was putting out wildly popular records that are now considered classics from Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.

The courtroom was filled by almost two dozen relatives of 55-year-old Terry Carter, including a 96-year-old aunt who like many of them cried and consoled one another. He did not address the court.

The probation violation stemmed from a scuffle he was involved in at a Las Vegas hotel in September 1996, hours before Shakur was shot to death while riding in a auto being driven by Knight on the Las Vegas Strip.

Tom Hardy’s son told him he portrayed Venom wrong
During his visit to the Life Foundation, Eddie is infected with a symbiote of his own, a creature called Venom . Film critic Katie Walsh argued that Venom managed to feel fun despite being messy and weird .

Knight had claimed he was trying to flee the scene in his truck, contending that Sloan - who was working security for the film set - was armed with a gun.

The expected prison time is in relation to a January 2015 incident that occurred near the set of a commercial being shot for the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton.

The video shows Knight backing his pickup truck over one man, Cle "Bone" Sloan, who survived, pulling forward and driving over Sloan again, and then fatally striking Carter before driving off. The Death Row founder will be credited time served for the 3 1/2 years he spent in jail leading up to his sentencing.

Prosecutors said he would have received 11 years in prison for the voluntary manslaughter count, but he had a prior conviction under California's three strike law.

The agreement also clears Knight in two other cases, both from 2014.
