The Death Row Records boss was accused of hitting a valet...
MARION ‘SUGE’ KNIGHT is going back to prison for 10 months for violating his parole.
The Death Row Records CEO was found guilty yesterday (July 31) by the parole board of punching a parking valet, according to MTV News.
Knight was accused of hitting valet Mehdi Lazrak in the back of the head. Lazrak’s boss claimed that evening (June 21), that he had witnessed the incident. Although he later retracted his statement, the parole board gave his earlier testimony more weight. “He back-pedalled a bit,” California Board of Prison Terms spokesperson Bill Sessa acknowledged. “But we have a provision for weighing testimony from fearful witnesses.”
CCTV footage of the incident presented by Knight’s defence was dismissed as being too out of focus.
