LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Greed appears to be the motive behind the selling of sealed video evidence by Suge Knight’s business partner.
The video was supposed to be kept under seal during the rap mogul’s murder trial. Around 2 weeks following a fatal hit-and-run, January 29, 2015, Mark Blankenship, 58, with his co-defendant, Toilin Kelly, 38, arranged the sale of a video. The two defendants negotiated a deal with TMZ although they knew the video was under a protective order.
Marion “Suge” Knight was sentenced to 28 years in prison for running over two men following an altercation outside of Tam’s restaurant. Terry Carter, 55, died as a result of the incident and the other man was injured. Knight pleaded no contest to one count of voluntary manslaughter and admitting a special allegation that he used a deadly weapon, a truck.
Blankenship pleaded no contest on Thursday, June 13, 2019, to one felony count of conspiracy. In addition, he was ordered to pay $55,000 in restitution to Tam’s Burgers. Kelly pleaded no contest on October 12, 2017, to one count of conspiracy to violate a court order. She was placed on five years formal probation, ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and also ordered to pay $55,000 in restitution to Tam’s Burgers.
