Knight was fined $691 Friday (August 5) and cleared of a marijuana possession
charge after pleading no contest to making an illegal U turn and driving without
insurance in Barstow, California.
Knight was arrested and incarcerated for more than a week after
police said they found marijuana in his Ford pickup truck during a traffic stop
on February 5.
The Death Row co-founder was found in violation of his parole
for venturing more than 50 miles from his home and ordered to electronic monitoring.
He was released from parole on April 24.
Both a parole agent and prosecutors decided to drop the drug
possession charge, citing inadequate evidence, according to James Hill, supervisor
of the Barstow district attorney’s office.
A case is still pending for Alexis Wilkinson, a teenage woman
who was in the truck with Knight at the time he was pulled over.
Wilkinson was arrested
and later released, and is charged with providing false information to police.
