Professor Chin Comments for Los Angeles Times on Suge Knight Case

Professor Gabriel “Jack” Chin commented for the Los Angeles Times on the case of Marion “Suge” Knight, the hip-hop music mogul who has been charged with murder in connection with a fatal hit-and-run. Two of Knight’s defense attorneys were recently arrested amid claims that Knight’s legal team has engaged in witness tampering, bribery, and violations of court orders. The attorneys were released without being charged, leading some to question why detectives arrested them without consulting the district attorney as to whether charges would be filed.

"I'd be inclined to bet that they didn't think this was a case the district attorney's office was going to love," said Chin.

Gabriel "Jack" Chin is Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor of Law and holder of the Edward L. Barrett, Jr. Endowed Chair at UC Davis School of Law. He is a prolific and much-cited criminal and immigration law scholar whose work has addressed many of the most pressing social issues of our time.
