The rap mogul is facing one count of murder for the death of Carter and one count of attempted murder of Sloan. Knight faces up to life in prison if convicted.
It looks like Suge Knight’s bail money might be coming from the bank account of boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather.
On Thursday morning, Knight, 49, appeared before a Los Angeles judge and plead not guilty to all counts in connection with January’s hit and run. Suge is accused of running over and killing Terry Carter and injuring actor, Cle Bone Sloan while in the parking lot of Tam’s Burgers in Compton, CA.
During Thursday’s hearing, the judge denied the former Death Row Records CEO’s request to reduce his bail amount from $10 million to $5 million. But those $10 million might arrive sooner than later.
Outside the courthouse, Knight’s attorney told the NY Daily News that Mayweather plans on bailing his client out after this weekend’s big Manny Pacquiao fight. “My understanding is that Suge is going to be bailed out this coming week,” lawyer Matthew Fletcher told the Daily News.
