Mystikal’s Bond Set for $2 Million in Rape Case

For the second time in his career, famed rapper, Mystikal, has been accused of raping a woman.

This time, the alleged act took place in October 2016 and his bond has been set by a Shreveport, La., judge for $2 million.

Mystikal, who was born Michael Lawrence Tyler, turned himself in to authorities on Monday. The 46-year-old and another man are accused of the heinous act.

Another woman, Tenichia Wafford, is wanted for allegedly trying to strong-arm the victim into dropping the charges against the men. She has yet to turn herself into authorities.

In 2002, the “Danger (Been So Long)” rapper was charged with raping an acquaintance at his house. He, along with two others, were also charged with extortion.

If he is unable to post bail, Mystikal will remain in the Caddo Parish jail until his arraignment Sept. 26. If convicted, he could get the death penalty.

Story developing.
