Marion “Suge” Knight, the former head of legendary rap label Death Row Records, is not having an easy time in jail .Knight is awaiting trial for a hit-and-run accident that left one person dead and another seriously injured.

After the accident, which took place in January 2015, Knight eventually surrendered to police. He has been charged with murder, attempted murder and vehicular assault. He contends that he was under attack and was fleeing in self-defense when he hit the victims with his pickup truck. Since his arrest he has not been able to raise the $10 million bail imposed on him by the courts. In addition, he has changed his legal team five times during his incarceration.

Now court records have revealed that the LAPD Sheriff has requested that Knight be stripped of major privileges and Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William C. Ryan has granted the sheriff’s request. Knight can no longer have visitation, receive mail  or make phone calls unless it is with his legal team. The reason for the request is sealed but it comes as a heavy blow to Knight, who has a 7-year.old son who visits regularly. According to court records, Knight has had visits from his parents, seven of his children, two spiritual advisers, 11 attorneys, a bail bond agent and a notary public.

He faces a potential sentence of life in prison if convicted of the charges because of his past felony arrests.

His next court hearing is scheduled for Feb. 22, 2016, with the trial scheduled to begin in July 2016.
