Katt Williams Pleads No Contest in Paparazzi Robbery Case

Katt Williams caught a huge break Monday (April 17) in his Beverly Hills robbery case involving music mogul Suge Knight. The comedian pleaded no contest to one felony count of second-degree robbery and was sentenced to three years of formal probation and 54 weeks of anger management classes.

Williams and Knight were accused of stealing photographer Leslie Redden camera on Sept. 5, 2014. She was allegedly robbed after the duo caught her recording them. Much of the incident was captured on video.

A source close to Williams said he never had any intentions of robbing redden, he simply objected to her allegedly shooting video of Knight’s young son shortly after Knight nearly died in a nightclub shooting.

Prosecutors also dropped charges in a separate case claiming Williams brandished a gun inside West Hollywood’s The Comedy Store in exchange for the no-contest plea.

Suge, who’s currently in jail on a murder charge, case is still pending.
