Former Lawyers Of Rap Mogul

No details of the claims against either attorney were available.

It looks like Marion "Suge" Knight won't be the only one that will be behind bars, his team may go down with him, too.

Although authorities have yet to confirm whether or not Fletcher and Culpepper's arrests are in connection with Knight's pending legal troubles, they have been previously accused of witness tampering in the rap impresario's murder case. Deputies took Matthew Fletcher, 53, and Thaddeus Culpepper, 44, into custody on warrants, said Nicole Nishida, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. One of the men, Terry Carter, was killed in the collision.

He is charged with murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run and expected to stand trial later this year. Suge says the move was in self-defense, A fact that Fletcher allegedly tried to push through cash payments to witnesses.

The alleged talks of bribery came in a series of recorded calls in 2015 between Knight, who was in jail, and Fletcher, along with Knight's fiancee and his business partner.

"If we can get the two or three versions from the bikers on tape and we can get ... we're done. Right? That's a fair ... investment, you know, 20, 25 thousand dollars". Fletcher immediately denied the claims and stated that he was suggesting that the bikers' cell phones be used to Knight's defense. Both of Suge's former attorneys are being held on $1 million bail. Transcripts of recorded conversations suggested the two had discussed fabricating testimony and Knight had tried to pay off potential witnesses with his lawyer's help, the filing said.

Culpepper was also arrested for accessory after the fact.

Knight's murder trial, which was originally set to begin on January 8, has been pushed back until later this year. According to the Associated Press, the now incarcerated Knight's former attorneys were arrested for reportedly tampering with witnesses' accounts concerning the Death Row Records' co-founder's ongoing murder trial.
