Suge Knight sentenced to 28 years in prison for manslaughter

Headlines 05/10/2018

Infamous Death Row Records CEO, and Hip-Hop Kingpin Suge Knight has been sentenced to 28 years in prison after he was found guilty of killing of 55-year-old Terry Carter.

The crime occurred in 2015 during a confrontation between Knight and longtime rival, Cle "Bone" Sloan, a consultant on "Straight Outta Compton." Suge was said to have been fighting Sloan outside of a Compton burger stand through the window of his car when he decided to strike him with his vehicle before running over Carter. 

Reports say Suge appeared 'unmoved' and unforgiving throughout the entire hearing process. He reportedly showed no emotion even after Carter's family members addressed the court with descriptions of Carter's kind and loving nature.

Knight remained unmoved when Carter's daughter, Crystal, called him "a disgusting, selfish disgrace to the human species." Knight was ultimately charged with voluntary manslaughter. 

In most cases, voluntary manslaughter charges result in 11-year sentences. Given Suge Knights' previous felony convictions, however, he is receiving a much lengthier sentencing. His combined discretions make him subject to California's three strikes law. The law dictates that in a situation such as Knight's, a manslaughter sentence is doubled and combined with an extra six years. 

You hate to kick a man when he's down, but good riddance Suge.
