Entertainment Indicted attorney dismissed from Suge Knight's murder case
Attorneys for Suge Knight indicted on charges related to witness tampering allegations
Two attorneys who have represented Marion “Suge” Knight at various stages of his upcoming murder trial were indicted Monday following accusations of witness tampering that have roiled the case since last year. Thaddeus Culpepper and Matthew Fletcher appeared in a downtown courtroom Monday morning where they were charged with conspiracy, according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. A charge of accessory after the fact to the 2015 murder Knight is accused of was also filed, though it was not immediately clear which attorney was accused of that count.
LOS ANGELES — An attorney who was indicted on witness-tampering charges was dismissed Monday from the murder case of rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight.
Knight previously gave up his right to having a lawyer without potential conflicts of interest so he could keep Thaddeus Culpepper on his defense team.
NYPD: We have considerable evidence in Weinstein rape case
New York City's top detective said Wednesday police have gathered considerable evidence in the rape investigation of Harvey Weinstein but it's up to the district attorney to decide whether the disgraced media mogul gets indicted."It's his case right now," Chief Robert Boyce said of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. "I would ask you to ask him his schedule where it goes forward."The district attorney's office had no comment.Boyce said investigators have been working diligently with women who alleged Weinstein raped them. The probe stems from a report in October by "Boardwalk"It's his case right now," Chief Robert Boyce said of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. "I would ask you to ask him ...
That decision came last month when Culpepper was under investigation but had not yet been indicted.
Los Angeles County Judge Ronald S. Coen overrode Knight's decision and removed Culpepper.
Knight, 52, the co-founder of Death Row Records, has pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder after he ran over two men outside a Compton burger stand in January 2015.
The move could mean more delays in a trial tentatively set to start April 9.
Culpepper and another former Knight attorney, Matthew Fletcher, were both indicted a week ago on charges of conspiring to influence potential witnesses in Knight's murder case. Both have denied any wrongdoing.
The indictment accused Culpepper of arranging with a potential witness, who turned out to be a confidential informant, to provide false testimony at trial — saying he saw weapons at the crime scene. That could bolster defense claims that Knight acted in self-defense.
Culpepper said he committed no crimes and was doing his job as Knight's defense attorney and looks forward to exonerating himself.
