Suge Knight Loses Non-attorney Jail Phone And Visitation Privileges


Marion Suge

The Death Row Records co-founder is facing murder, attempted murder, and hit-and-run charges following a fatal altercation on a Compton, California film set at the start of 2015, when he killed his friend, Terry Carter, and injured a second man, actor Cle Sloan.

Knight, who has pleaded not guilty to the charges, is being held on $10 million (£6.85 million) bail, and on Wednesday (03Feb16), it was revealed sheriff's investigators had filed a sealed request last month (Jan16) seeking to cut his visitor and phone privileges - a motion granted by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William C. Ryan on Friday (29Jan16).

The reason for the request has not been made public.

Suge Knight Recruits Fifth Lawyer To Tackle Murder Charges


Marion Suge

The Death Row Records co-founder is facing murder, attempted murder, and hit-and-run charges following a fatal altercation on a California film set at the start of 2015, when he killed his friend, Terry Carter, and injured a second man, actor Cle Sloan.

He hired Mesereau, who successfully defended Michael Jackson against child molestation allegations in 2005, last May (15), but during a closed court hearing in Los Angeles on Thursday (21Jan16), it was revealed Mesereau was no longer representing Knight, and Stephen L. Schwartz, a former prosecutor, had been recruited as his replacement.

Sources tell TMZ.com the fall out between Mesereau and Knight occurred over what the 50-year-old insists was the leak of confidential information to authorities.

Suge Knight Scolded By Judge For Birthday Message To Son


Marion Suge Katt Williams

The troubled hip-hop star appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this month (Oct15), when Judge Ronald Coen ruled there was enough evidence against Knight and his comedian pal Katt Williams to take a 2014 altercation case to trial.

During the 13 October (15) hearing, Knight turned to TV cameras and held up a piece of paper, on which he'd scribbled "Happy B-day Legend" to mark the boy's sixth birthday.

The low-key stunt didn't go unnoticed in the press, and it landed Knight in trouble with Judge Coen when he returned to court for arraignment this week.

The troubled stars stand accused of attempting to snatch Leslie Redden's camera during an incident outside a recording studio in Beverly Hills, California last year (14), days after Knight was shot at a party.

The case has been delayed multiple times in recent months as Death Row Records co-founder Knight continues to struggle with health complications as a result of the shooting incident, but he was back in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday (13Oct15).

The former rap mogul appeared at Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday (17Sep15) to hear prosecutors outline their case against him stemming from a bust-up with a photographer in Beverly Hills, California last year (14).

Knight, 50, denies a charge of felony robbery for allegedly grabbing a camera from the female paparazzo, while his comedian pal, Katt Williams, who was also accused of involvement in the incident, has pleaded not guilty to one count of robbery.

Suge Knight's Attorney Requests Prison Cell Move


Marion Suge

The Death Row Records co-founder is locked up in a Los Angeles prison on charges of murder and attempted murder after he was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run which killed his friend Terry Carter and injured actor Cle 'Bone' Sloan in January (15).

Knight's new lawyer Thomas Mesereau has filed legal documents asking for the rap mogul to be moved, claiming his current living situation is bad for his health and sanity.

According to TMZ.com, Mesereau claims the bed is not long enough for Knight's towering frame and the lavatory flushes on its own every 20 minutes so he cannot get a good night's sleep.

Suge Knight's Attorney Wants Bail Reduction After Unearthing New Video Evidence


Marion Suge

The Death Row Records co-founder was slapped with counts of murder and attempted murder earlier this year (15) after running over and killing his friend Terry Carter and injuring actor Cle 'Bone' Sloan as he sped away from a California film set in January (15) following a dispute.

His attorney, Thomas Mesereau, failed to have the counts against Knight dismissed during a court hearing on Tuesday (07Jul15), but he has filed a motion to have the mogul's bail lowered amid claims he has obtained new evidence to prove a lack of intent.

Mesereau alleges the film, which has yet to be shown in court, shows Knight being attacked in his truck by a man holding a gun, while several others standing nearby were also armed, reports The Associated Press.

Judge Rejects Motion To Dismiss Suge Knight Murder Charges


Marion Suge

The Death Row Records co-founder was slapped with counts of murder and attempted murder earlier this year (15) after he was involved in a fatal hit-and-run incident on a California film set in January (15).

One of the two victims, actor Cle 'Bone' Sloan, told police investigating the crime that Knight was the man behind the wheel of the vehicle which ran him over and killed mutual friend Terry Carter, but he refused to officially identify the fallen music boss during a preliminary hearing in April (15) to avoid being labelled a "snitch".

Knight's new attorney, Thomas Mesereau - the same man who successfully defended Michael Jackson against child molestation allegations in 2005 - cited Sloan's failure to point out Knight in court as reason enough to throw out the charges, while he also questioned Sloan's credibility amid concerns he was continually changing his story.
