Z-Ro Charged With Misdemeanor Assault In Just Brittany Abuse Case

Z-Ro Charged With Misdemeanor Assault In Just Brittany Abuse Case
(FreshAsFrankie) Despite avoiding a felony, the Texas native is now facing another charge one day later.

It appeared Joseph McVey (aka Z-Ro) was cleared in the felony assault case involving his former girlfriend Just Brittany Bullock. A grand jury declined to indict the Houston rapper, but a Harris County prosecutor is charging Z-Ro with assault on a family member.

The charge is a misdemeanor, but still, Z-RO faces up to a year in jail. His attorney stated, “I have to assume this is a result of the media grandstanding of [Brittany’s] California counsel and we will continue to vigorously defend him in criminal and civil court.”

Celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom is representing Bullock. Bloom tweeted yesterday, “Proud to stand by my client Just Brittany in her assault case against Z-Ro. Today’s hearing was continued, we fight on tomorrow in court.”

“I just want to put all of this behind me, and move on with my career,” said Brittany.

Mystikal IS Formally Charged With Rape Again; $2 Million Bond Set

Rapper Mystikal wanted in alleged sexual assault: report

(FreshAsFrankie) Mystikal IS Formally Charged With Rape Again; $2 Million Bond Set

Mystikal is charged with Rape after Shreveport Police issue an arrest warrant for the rapper.
UPDATE: Mystikal is now accused of rape. Police obtained warrants for the 46-year-old rapper and 26-year-old Averweone Holman. They are charged with one count each of First Degree Rape. Bond was set at $2 million each.

 

While police spokesperson Cpl. Angie Willhite refused to elaborate, KSLA reports that the incident stems from the rapper’s stop in Shreveport on the Legends of Hip-Hop” tour.

While the nature of the charges are not known, Mystikal is no stranger to the law.

In 2003, Mystikal’s rising career was interrupted, when he was sentenced to six years in prison for sexual battery and extortion after he forced a female employee to tape herself engaged in sex acts.

According to reports, the alleged rape occurred because the victim accepted checks against the rapper’s bank account even though she knew he didn’t authorize them.

The extortion charges stem from Mystikal allegedly soliciting the woman for sex, under the condition that he wouldn’t turn her into the police for her crime.

The rapper also served two months in jail for violating his probation, after he was arrested for domestic abuse in February of 2010.
