Suge Knight camp continues to be rocked by bad news over the past few weeks.
The former Death Row Records head fiance, Toi-Lin Kelly, was sentenced to three years in prison for helping him violate a court order. Suge Knight is currently on trial for murder involving the 2015 death of his friend Terry Carter, who was killed by a vehicle driven by the record label exec. The Los Angeles Times reported that Kelly, 37, helped Knight find a way to get around a court-ordered stipulation that regulates his phone calls from jail.
According to authorities, Toi-Lin Kelly broke the law when she assisted Suge Knight to arrange an interview with BET to discuss a documentary about Death Row Records. Authorities also claimed that she used a private investigator to communicate with her fiance.
She pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced on Friday, February 2nd, to three years in prison. “To me it’s pretty blatant, and frankly, jaw-dropping,” LA County Superior Court Judge, Douglas Sortino, said while handing down the sentencing.
Last year, Toi-Lin Kelly also pleaded no contest to charges of violating court order when she sold surveillance footage related to Suge Knight’s trial to TMZ for $55,000. She was sentenced to five years probation, perform 100 hours of community service, and ordered to pay back the $55,000 in restitution.
Suge Knight has been getting some bad news lately. Two of his former attorneys were recently arrested and charged with accessory. It’s unclear if the charge is related to Knight’s murder case, but its currently under review by the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office and more details will come out.
