A grand jury has indicted Michael Lawrence Tyler, better known as Mystikal, on one count each of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping. His bond has been set at $3 million.
Last month, the No Limit MC surrendered himself to authorities at Caddo Correctional Center in Shreveport, La. Along with two accomplices, Tyler was wanted in connection to an assault at a casino in the 300 block of Clyde Fant Memorial Parkway, according to TheJasmineBrand.
The mile-a-minute rhymer pleaded guilty to sexual battery and extortion charges in 2003. Upon his 2010 release, he was handed five years on probation and was required to register as a sex offender in the state of Louisiana.
Mystikal’s accomplices include Averweone Darnell Holman, 26, found guilty of one count each of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping, as well as Tenichia Monieck Wafford,42, found guilty on one count of obstruction of justice.
