Suge Knight has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run relating to a January incident in which Terry Carter was killed and Cle “Bone” Sloan was seriously injured in Compton, California.

Knight appeared in court Thursday, where his lawyer asked the judge to reduce Knight’s bail from $10 million to $5 million, according to reports. The judge denied the request. Knight could face life in prison if convicted.

Knight entered a not guilty plea in February before collapsing in court and being transported to hospital. He collapsed a second time during a bail review hearing in March and was again taken to hospital.

      Suge Knight is a scumbag.. but i do believe that he was set up, and he’s not guilty. He’s still got charges pending. It’s like OJ..they didn’t get him for murder, which they should have if Furman didn’t fuck up..but they got him for stealing back his own memorabilia..which was a set up in it’s own right.
