Authorities claimed Knight intentionally drove his Truck into Carter and another man, Cle "Bone" Sloan, who was severely injured.

Under the sentencing guidelines, Knight would receive the high-term of 11 years in prison for the voluntary manslaughter count, which would double because he has a prior conviction under California's three strikes law.
Knight, co-founder of influential hip-hop label Death Row Records, entered the plea ahead of his scheduled trial on murder charges.
Suge has maintained that he wasn't trying to hurt Sloan or Carter and says he was trying to escape after believing that they were both about to shoot him. Two separate criminal cases in which he was charged with robbery and making criminal threats will also be dismissed when he is formally sentenced on October 4, prosecutors said.
Knight's legal team attempted to argue that their client was acting in self-defense, alleging that Sloan was armed, but it didn't seem to hold up in court.
His attorney Albert DeBlanc Jr., appointed by the court five months ago, was his 16th, and Knight tried to fire him and get yet another lawyer just a day before the deal was reached.
