Suge Knight’s attorney, Tom Mesereau, is “disappointed” by a judge’s decision to keep Knight locked up right where he is.
Mesereau recently filed documents asking for better jail conditions, but today, a judge denied the request. Mesereau tells HipHollywood exclusively that their team is “disappointed by the ruling” and that they are “weighing our future options.”
Knight’s attorney went on to say that they think the rap moguls’s $10 million bail “should be lower and that he should be moved to a more desirable part of the jail.”
The former Death Row Records CEO is facing chafes of murder, attempted murder and two counts of hit-and-run following February’s fatal hit-and-run accident in Compton, CA. Knight has been behind bars since the incident and according to Mesereau, the conditions are not ideal.
“Where ever he goes, 3 sheriffs follow with a video camera,” he told us. “The cell is small and he is not getting proper medical treatment.”
The famed lawyer, most known for representing Michael Jackson in the 2005 child molestation trial, went on to say that the “bed is too small” and that Knight “should be in celebrity” unit, but he is not. The team thinks it is all done for a reason.
