According to TMZ, Suge Knight has struck a plea deal in the murder case of Terry Carter. Suge was facing life in prison for killing Carter in 2015 in the parking lot of Tam’s Burgers in Compton. He also ran over Cle “Bone” Sloan,” who was injured but survived. 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. Suge has been behind bars awaiting trial since the 2015 incident.

The plea deal was just unveiled in court, and Suge will get 28 years in prison after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter. The 53-year-old will get credit for time served, he has been in jail awaiting trial for around 3 1/2 years. He will also be on parole for 3 years after serving his prison sentence.

Suge’s sentence is stiffer than a typical voluntarily manslaughter because he had a prior felony conviction in 1997. He was also sentenced to an extra 5 years because the Carter killing was deemed a “serious and violent” felony, and an additional year due to his truck being a deadly weapon.
