Suge Knight has been sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter. According to Consequence of Sound, Knight’s plea came days before his trial was scheduled to begin on Monday, September 24. The former Death Row Records CEO was arrested and charged with murder in January 2015 after he was involved in a hit-and-run on the Los Angeles set of the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton. He will get credit for the three-and-a-half years he served while awaiting the trial. In addition to the murder charge, Knight is facing a second-degree robbery charge for an incident in 2014 that involved comedian Katt Williams.
