‘Suge’ Knight hires his 4th lawyer, who once defended Michael Jackson.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge on Friday delayed the murder trial of Marion “Suge” Knight after the former rap music mogul hired the attorney who successfully defended Michael Jackson against child molestation charges.LOS ANGELES — In an unusual set of hearings on Friday, Marion Knight, the former chief executive of Death Row Records, who is known as Suge among associates in the music world, was granted a delay in his scheduled murder trial as he enlisted a new lawyer, Thomas A.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen on Friday rescheduled a hearing on a motion by Knight to dismiss murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges. Knight is accused of deliberately running over Terry Carter, 55, and Cle “Bone” Sloan, 51, in a restaurant parking lot on Jan. 29 after an argument on the set of a commercial about the film “Straight Outta Compton.” Carter died and Sloan was injured.

Coen said that wasn’t entirely true and that he had entered a sealed order about Knight’s rights in jail at the request of sheriff’s officials that prosecutors did not know about. Fletcher made headlines last month when he said that if Knight’s friend, boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., won his history-making match against Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas, Mayweather would cover his client’s $10-million bail.

He pleaded no contest in 1995 and was sentenced to five years’ probation for assaulting two rap entertainers at a Hollywood recording studio in 1992.
