Marion 'Suge' KnightFallen rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight has been fined and sentenced to community service and violence counseling, after pleading guilty to beating his girlfriend.

Just two days after the former Death Row boss was attacked himself in a hotel brawl, Knight appeared in court in Las Vegas on Wednesday, to complete a plea deal that keeps him out of jail.

Knight pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery and authorities agreed to drop two felony drug possession charges and one felony coercion charge.

According to local reports, the felony charges were dropped because Knight's girlfriend Melissa Isaac disappeared after he was arrested for assaulting her in August last year.

He has been ordered to pay a $340 fine; serve 48 hours community service and complete a domestic violence course.
