Marion Suge Knight has so many charges and court cases that one needs a personal calendar and secretary to keep up with the changing court dates and felony charges. Knight has been accused of not only robbery, murder, threatening F.Gary Gray but he has also been accused of bribery as well as in getting his girlfriend, one of his lawyers and his business partner indicted for selling sealed court evidence to TMZ. This long saga is far from over yet Knight’s team has been busy shaping the spin to the public by trying to distract with a FOX show about the unsolved Tupac Shakur murder. Next year many of Suge Knight’s cases will be tried and he will finally face a jury of his peers. Will all the people who aided and abetted Knight be held accountable?
Mark I. Blankenship is an interesting person. He looks more like a vampire than an attorney but yet he once practiced law until he stepped down due to irregularities in his business practice. You can find his legal back ground on the California State Bar website.
More recently, Blankenship has been in the news for helping his big Sugar Bear business partner Marion Suge Knight and one of his baby’s momma Toi-lyn Kelly selling sealed court video evidence to the pinnacle of journalism in today’s trump’s reality TV show society – TMZ. According to reports, it took several months for Kelly and Blankenship to get paid $55,000 for the video which shows Mr. Terry Carter getting run over twice by an enraged Marion Suge Knight. The former Death Row CEO was upset about his likeness in the movie Straight Outta of Compton and he wanted to be paid. So instead of handling the situation through attorneys, Knight decided to show up to the set and things went down hill from there escalating to the murder of Carter who according to sources was trying to help diffuse the volcanic situation.
Mark Blankenship and Toi-lyn decided to help Sugar Bear Knight by getting their hands on the surveillance footage that showed the death of Mr. Terry Carter by Suge and to sell the sealed court evidence to the virtuous TMZ. TMZ bought the tape for a reportedly $55,000 which was considered a steal since rumors were the pair wanted upwards of $500,000. Now the ride or die pair are indicted on multiple felony charges connected to the selling of sealed court evidence.
Below is a video from 2015, where Mark Blankenship defends his Sugar Bear – Marion Suge Knight.
What is Suge Knight’s end game? A mistrial by jury tampering? Threatening all witnesses and victims? Exhausting the court system as well as the plaintiffs? Going on more field trips by committing more crimes? Proving that the Los Angeles Court System is either corrupt and or incompetent or both?
For a man who has been playing the court system since the 1990s, as a gang member (allegedly) as well as the former CEO of Death Row Records, Marion Suge Knight has been flexing his authoritarian muscle for a very long time. He is a King Pin a Gangster a Racketeer. He flaunts that even now in court and behind bars.
Recently Knight has yet another indictment under the long list of other criminal acts added to his trophy belt. He has been accused of not only making criminal threats against “Straight Outta Compton” Director F. Gary Gray but he has been accused working with his attorney Matthew Fletcher of attempting to bribe witnesses to give false testimony.
Besides using his time behind bars to do mischief with one of his many attorneys, Knight has gotten his girlfriend Toilin Kelly and his business partner Mark Blakenship to do his dirty work on the outside. Kelly and Blakenship were indicted last week for selling sealed evidence by the court (the surveillance video of Terry Carter’s death) to Harry Levin’s TMZ for $55,000. Below is my take on the current news and below that video are 2015 videos of Matthew Fletcher talking outside the court and Mark Blakenship (Knight’s business partner) speaking on Marion Suge Knight’s behalf.
Former Death Row Records kingpin, Marion Suge Knight was in court 09/11/2017 for doing another list of crimes this time while behind bars for murder. According to multiple reports Knight is accused of conspiring with, one of his many attorneys, Matthew Fletcher. While meeting with his Fletcher behind bars, Suge Knight discussed bribing certain witnesses to help him beat his murder charge and ways to threaten ‘Straight Outta Compton’ director F. Gary Gray.
Marion Suge Knight latest criminal threats is another charge of a growing number that show Knight is a criminal boss whose misdeeds do not cease just because he is locked up behind bars. There are some odd things going on in court while Knight is suppose to be at least pretending to be innocent. On Monday morning Knight was heard yelling for his attorney as well as trying to communicate with someone in the back of the court.
