Looks like Suge Knight and girlfriend Toilin Kelly won’t be getting his-and-hers jail cells after all.
Kelly pleaded no contest to a count of conspiracy to violate a court order on Thursday, avoiding jail time, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said.
Kelly, 37, received five years of formal probation. She was also sentenced to 100 hours of community service, and ordered to pay $55,000 in restitution to Tam’s Burgers.
Kelly and her business partner Mark Blankenship were accused of arranging the sale of the video of a fatal hit-and-run involving Knight about two weeks after the Jan. 29, 2015, incident.
Knight is currently awaiting trial on murder and attempted murder charges stemming from the incident, which left 55-year-old Terry Carter dead and another man injured.
Knight, 52, is awaiting trial for allegedly killing 55-year-old Terry Carter and injuring another man he hit with his truck in the Tam’s parking lot.
Kelly and Blankenship spent nearly a month negotiating a deal with TMZ, a celebrity news website, according to the indictment. The two defendants were aware the video was under a protective order, according to the district attorney’s office.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Ricardo Ocampo previously granted the prosecution’s motion for a protective order that prohibited the release of any evidence in the murder case, including the video, from being released to the public.
