Suge Knight’s ex-lawyer accepts plea deal, to stop practicing law

Matthew Fletcher, the former attorney of Suge Knight, agreed to a plea deal after being accused of trying to bribe witnesses for his client, All Hip Hop reports.

Citing the Los Angeles Times, the platform adds that Fletcher pleaded no contest to one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice and one count of perjury. He’ll be placed on probation for five years and must quit practicing law.

The plea deal requires Fletcher to resign from the state bar within 90 days. If he doesn’t, he may wind up in jail.

Fletcher was facing the possibility of spending nearly four years in prison. His alleged misdeeds stem from Suge Knight’s murder case.
