Exclusive: Suge Knight Still In Custody + Lawyer Says Robbery Allegations Stand On “Shaky Ground”
Suge Knight’s lawyer is suggesting that the allegations surrounding the rap mogul’s recent arrest are questionable at best.
“I have not seen evidence in the case except what’s been made public. That evidence does not support the charges,” Richard Schonfeld tells HipHollywood exclusively. “Additionally, the time frame of the alleged incident was one week after he [Suge Knight] was shot six times and had staples in his body. So the allegations that he was part of a robbery already stands on shaky ground.”
Suge and comedian Katt Williams were arrested on Wednesday after being accused of stealing a female photographer’s camera in Beverly Hills last month.
“Mr. Knight was unaware that there was any warrant,” Richard tells us. “We will be addressing the circumstances in court.”
We are told that the Death Row Records co-founder is sill in custody and that he is set to appear in court on Monday morning at 7:30 a.m. If convicted, Knight could face up to 30 years to life in prison and Williams, seven years.
