Suge Knight is experiencing newfound heights of struggle. The former CEO was recently in court pleading for access to legal counsel but the judge wasn’t hearing any of it.
In a video filmed during the court proceedings, a visibly frustrated Knight is requesting the opportunity to speak other lawyers for his upcoming murder trial. “The only person I’m allowed to call is him and sometimes his office doesn’t even take my call” he explained.
By the looks of the footage, Suge is only being afforded one trial lawyer but wants to contract additional legal representation including former Deathrow Records adviser David Kenner who was in attendance.
“I don’t want to miss my trial date. I don’t want to slow my trial date down; I just want to be able to talk to counsel so I can be prepared” Knight appealed.
However, the judge is showing very little sympathy claiming he does not have the power to clear Suge’s current legal restrictions.
On January 29, 2015, the nefarious music executive was involved in a hit and run accident that left one man dead and another critically injured. It is alleged Knight showed up to the set of Straight Outta Compton looking to confront Dr. Dre for what he felt was a misrepresentation of his character in the movie. The trial is set for January 8, 2018.
