Mystikal faces a possible life sentence after being formally charged with first-degree rape.

Things have gotten even worse for Mystikal, as her serious legal problems have escalated following her latest rape case. According to new reports, Mystikal has just been indicted on his previous charges of first-degree rape, and if he is convicted, he faces a possible life sentence behind bars.

A Louisiana grand jury has officially indicted rapper Mystikal (real name Michael Lawrence Tyler) on first-degree rape charges that were initially filed in July. Due to state law, if Mystikal is convicted of the alleged sexual assault, he will serve a mandatory life sentence. In addition to the first-degree rape charge, in which a woman claims he sexually assaulted her and took her hostage, Mystikal also faces nine other criminal charges, including criminal damage to property, false imprisonment, domestic violence by strangulation, robbery , and multiple drug-related crimes.

Mystikal is currently being held at Ascension Parish Prison, where he has been since his arrest and will remain there as he has not been granted bail. Following news of his client’s indictment, Mystikal’s attorney, Joel Pearce, said, “It’s an indictment. It does not mean anything. We look forward to our day in court.”

You will recall that this is the third sexual assault case involving Mystikal, with the most recent occurring in 2017 and involving charges of first degree rape and second degree kidnapping. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison for that incident before finally posting $3 million bail. However, his first sexual assault conviction was in 2003 when he was convicted of sexually assaulting his hairstylist.

He was sentenced to six years in prison before being released in 2010, as a result of his conviction in that case, he is a registered sex offender for life.
