Suge Knight Hopes Casey Anthony's Lawyer Can Help Him Beat A Murder Charge Too
(AllHipHop News) Suge Knight is trying to land a high-profile attorney, as his impending, often delayed murder trial looms.
Suge, who was hospitalized again earlier this week for an undisclosed illness, is seeking to get defense attorney Jose Baez to represent him. Baez is best known for helping Casey Anthony beat a charge of murder in 2011, over the death of her own two-year-old daughter Caylee.
He also helped disgraced Aaron Hernandez beat a double murder case, although the NFL star was already serving life for the murder of his associate, Odin Lloyd.
Suge was indicted for murder and attempted murder, for running over Terry Carter and Cle “Bone” Sloan during a fight at a burger stand in Los Angeles in January of 2015.
Carter was killed from his injuries, while Cle “Bone” Sloan sustained severe wounds.
Suge has been incarcerated for more than three years.
"My case is a real simple case. Either I did something or I didn't. Either they had firearms or they didn't," Suge a court during a hearing last month.
Suge has since been discharged from the hospital and is currently back in his cell in the L.A. County Jail.
