His trial was scheduled to begin October 1.

Knight, 53, had faced a murder charge and has been in jail since turning himself in shortly after the January 29, 2015, collision in which his red Ford Raptor pickup plowed into Terry Carter, 55, and 51-year-old Cle "Bone" Sloan, a technical adviser on the movie, who survived. Sloan has denied he and Carter were carrying arms.

Knight disagreed with the judge's description of one of his previous strikes and put a pause in the proceedings that briefly raised tension in the courtroom.

Knight has reportedly been experiencing health issues in recent years and told the judge he expects to die in prison.

As part of the agreement to plead no contest to a single count of voluntary manslaughter, all other charges in the case were dropped. He was accused of stealing a camera from a woman and sending threatening text messages to Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray. Surveillance video of the incident was said to have been ready to play had the case gone to trial.

According to a report in effect of Sound, he was also facing a second-degree robbery charge for a 2014 incident in which he and comedian Katt Williams were accused of stealing a paparazzi's camera.Last year, Knight was indicted on charges of "threatening death or bodily injury" against Staight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray.

This year's vaccine can cover up to four different strains of the illness - two As (an H1N1 and an H3N2) and two Bs, Tung said. The B/Victoria component became changed and the influenza A (H3N2) component became updated.

Knight would've gotten 20 years, but he picked up an additional five years because the crime was deemed violent and severe. Knight fled the scene. He was charged with murder, attempted murder and hit and run.

The plea deal was initiated by Al DeBlanc, the attorney for Knight, to the L.A. County district attorney office on Wednesday. Prosecutors did not speak to reporters outside court. The charge Knight plead no contest to was voluntary manslaughter, in which Terry Carter was plowed over by a vehicle Knight was at the wheel of at a restaurant in Compton.

A key figure in the gangsta-rap scene of the 1990s, Knight co-founded Death Row Records in 1991, a now-defunct label that once represented Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur, and Snoop Dogg. Knight lost control of the company after it was forced into bankruptcy. He'll also be on parole for 3 years after serving his prison sentence. In 1997, he was sentenced to jail for violating that probation after participating in an altercation in Las Vegas that culminated hours later in the fatal shooting of Tupac Shakur while he rode in Knight's auto. Shakur's slaying remains unsolved.
