Suge Knight: Prosecutors Accuse Rap Mogul, Lawyer of Witness Bribery

Written by  Daniel Kreps

Suge Knight and his attorney Matthew Fletcher are accused of attempting to orchestrate witness bribery ahead of the rap mogul's murder trial, prosecutors revealed Wednesday.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office based the allegations on a series of prison phone calls between Knight and his lawyer.

According to transcripts released by the prosecution, Knight, Fletcher, Knight's fiancée Toi-Lin Kelly and business partner Mark Blankenship "had an understanding that they were going to assist the defendant in procuring witnesses for his defense, which included payments for fabricated testimony."

In the recorded prison conversations, Fletcher allegedly discussed paying "witnesses" money to supply false testimony for the trial. "I'll pay anything ... if we can get the two or three versions from the bikers on tape," Fletcher said. "It's going home time. Right? That's a fair motherfucking investment, you know, 20, 25 thousand dollars to pay to these motherfuckers to get home."

Speaking to the New York Daily News, Fletcher denied the allegations, instead admitting that the conversation revolved around acquiring a second video from the January 2015 incident where Knight ran over and killed Terry Carter in an attempt to hit Cle "Bone" Sloan outside a promotional shoot for the film Straight Outta Compton.
