The Court Has Lowered Suge Knights Bail To 10 Million
|The Court Has Lowered Suge Knights Bail To 10 Million|
Knight’s lawyer, Matthew Fletcher, told Reports that his client can now make bail as early as today.
Knight will now stand trial for one count of murder, one count of attempted murder and one count of hit-and-run.
The additional hit-and-run charge was dropped because California law only allows one count of the charge against a defendant if he was using the same weapon; in this case it was Knight’s car that struck his two victims.
However prosecutors disagree and stated that the situation was mutual combat and that Knight used his car as a weapon.
In addition, Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Cynthia Barnes stated that if Knight “ever had the right of self-defense, the moment he backed-up and Mr. Sloan was ran-over, he lost the right of self-defense…There was pre-mediation and intent when he (Knight) ran over him a second time.”
Knight’s next big day in court will be on April 30, 2015 when he will face arraignment.
