(FreshAsFrankie) A Caddo Parish, Louisiana Grand Jury has indicted Mystikal on one count each of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping.
The indictment, which was handed down Tuesday, September 19, stems from an incident that allegedly took place at a Shreveport casino where the 46-year old rapper, born Michael Lawrence Tyler, performed in 2016.
KSLA reports that his bond has been set at $3 million.
The New Orleans native initially turned himself in on August 21. At the time a member of the Mystikal’s camp told TMZ that the accusation was false, and he planned on pleading not guilty.
Two other people were also indicted in connection with the crime.
26-year old Darnell Holman on one count each of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping. His bond has been set at $3 million.
Tenichia Monieck Wafford, 42, on one count of obstruction of justice. Her bond is set at $500,000.
This is the second time Mystikal has been in trouble for a sexually-related crime.
In 2003 the “Danger (Been So Long)” hit maker pleaded guilty to sexual battery and extortion. He was sentenced to six years in prison.
