Death Row founder Suge Knight pleaded not guilty to a robbery charge on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
The rapper, along with comedian Katt Williams, is accused of stealing a photographer’s camera on Sept. 5 outside a Beverly Hills studio.
The 49-year-old appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Wednesday and had his bail set at $500,000. He was arrested in Las Vegas last week and fell while in jail, and his attorneys said he bruised his head and neck.
Knight and Williams will each be charged with one count of robbery. Because Knight has a prior record, he could face up to 30 years in prison.
Knight, 49, faces up to 30 years in prison because he has a prior conviction for assault with a deadly weapon. Williams, who was arrested when he showed up at court for a different assault case, faces a maximum of seven years. Knight was arrested in Las Vegas.
Prosecutors said they will ask for Knight’s bail to be set at $1 million and for a $75,000 bail for Williams, 43.
The Beverly Hills Police are investigating the case.
