The pair was indicted on July 28th for one felony count each of conspiracy to violate a court order, conspiracy to obstruct justice and conspiracy to commit grand theft. The indictment was unsealed on Wednesday following Kelly's plea of not guilty to the charges. Blankenship will be arraigned at a later date on the same charges.
Kelly and Blankenship are accused of arranging the sale of surveillance video of the fatal hit-and-run incident that Knight is accused of perpetrating in January 2015, which killed Terry Carter. Knight, who is awaiting trial on murder charges for Carter's death and attempted murder of Cle "Bone" Sloan who was also struck during the incident, has pleaded not guilty and claims he acted in self-defense.
Kelly and Blankenship allegedly began working on the video sale two weeks after the incident and spent nearly a month calling and texting between themselves, TMZ, Knight, attorneys and other individuals to arrange the sale of the video surveillance footage, according to the indictment.Read more at RollingStone
