Katt Williams Will Stand Trial For Robbery 
BHR Hollywood Reports......... Marion “Suge” Knight and comedian Katt Williams should stand trial on charges they robbed a celebrity photographer of her camera last year, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Attorneys for Williams and Knight said their clients were trying to prevent the photographer from shooting images of Knight's young son.

Knight's lawyer Thomas Mesereau denied his client was actively

involved in taking the camera, saying the photographer's testimony and surveillance footage supported his contention that the Death Row Records co-founder never touched the photographer or took her camera.

He said Knight was upset because Leslie Redden and another photographer were shooting images of son just says after Knight was wounded in a nightclub shooting.

Knight and Williams have pleaded not guilty and are due to be re-arraigned in the case on Oct. 27

Redden, a celebrity photographer who goes by the name KAT, testified she suffered a concussion and injuries to her hands and wrist in the Sept. 5, 2014 attack.

A confrontation with Knight in which he calls her a “bitch” and tells someone to get her camera was recorded on a video recorder she wore around her neck.

Redden said she never recovered her professional camera, which was taken by a woman who attacked her and Williams.

Knight is also seen on the video approaching Redden before she takes off running. “I just remember looking at his eyes and realizing it was getting very dangerous,” Redden testified Tuesday.

Redden broke down when describing her injuries, saying, “There’s a rip in my wrist. I’m ambidextrous, but my hands don’t work,” she said.

Knight remains jailed without bail in a separate murder case filed after he ran over two men outside a Compton burger stand in January, killing one and seriously injuring an adviser to the film “Straight Outta Compton.”

Knight, 50, has pleaded not guilty and already been ordered to stand trial in that case, but no trial date has been set. Coen set a Dec. 11 court hearing to get an update on the case.

Knight was a key player in the gangster rap scene that flourished in the 1990s, and his Death Row Records label once listed Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg among its artists. He lost control of the company after it was forced into bankruptcy.

He faces potential life sentences if convicted in either case because of prior convictions for armed robbery and assault with a gun.

Williams, 44, has starred in several comedy specials and appeared in films such as “First Sunday” and “Friday After Next.”
