Marion “Suge” Knight has arrived at the Wasco State Prison and Reception Center in California, where he could be staying for the remainder of his 28 years prison sentence.
Suge was transferred to the Kern County facility on Tuesday (October 23, 2018), according to state records. A mugshot obtained by TMZ shows Knight with a sullen expression.
He’ll have to go through physical and mental examinations and review his records before getting settled at Wasco. Depending on the results he can stay there, or be transferred to another prison.
Suge was sentenced to 28 years in state prison earlier this month. Back in September, the rapper had pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in a January 2015 hit-and-run incident in which a vehicle he was riding in struck two pedestrians in Compton, California — killing 55-year-old Terry Carter.
Suge pleaded copped to one count of voluntary manslaughter and also admitted he used his vehicle as a deadly weapon.
