 LOS ANGELES ― A prolific jailhouse informant who has worked inside county jails here said that he was ordered by a Los Angeles County sheriff to create false testimony surrounding rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight.
The informant told Knight’s lawyers that evidence exists, but has been intentionally withheld by law enforcement, that Knight was acting in self-defense when he killed one man and injured another with his truck in Compton, California, last year.
The bombshell allegations from Daniel Timms, who said he had worked on Knight’s case, could be a boon for Knight, who sits in jail awaiting trial on murder and attempted murder charges.
Timms’ claims could also cast doubt on convictions in several other criminal cases that he said he worked as a paid jailhouse informant over the last 14 years. He told Knight’s legal team that he was ordered to provide false testimony in those cases as well, again by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
