Mystikal Denied Bail + Locked Up Awaiting Sentence

It appears it was just a matter of time. Rapper Mystikal is back behind bars!

Michael Lawrence Tyler, best known as Mystikal has been locked up and awaiting trial since being indicted on one count of first-degree rape and one count of second-degree kidnapping last year. Read on…

Mystikal Denied Bail + Locked Up Awaiting reports that a Caddo Parish Judge decided against reducing rapper Mystikal’s $3 million bond Thursday afternoon.

Mystikal is now sitting in a prison cell like Suge Knight did for three and a half years awaiting his sentencing since a Caddo Parish Judge rejected his request to have his $3 million bail lowered.

Now, the “Danger” rapper will have to stay in jail until his trial. His next hearing is October 25. Mystikal is one of three men charged in connection with a sexual assault in a Shreveport, Louisiana casino which took place in October of 2016.

The veteran rapper called the charges against him “completely bogus.” It’s hard to believe Mystikal since he has a history with sex crimes. He served almost seven years for sexual battery and extortion charges.

If you recall, Mystikal was indicted in 2003 on charges of sexual battery and extortion. On January 15, 2004, he was sentenced to six years in prison after pleading guilty to forcing his hairstylist to perform sex acts.

Upon his release in January 2010, the 48-year old was given five years probation and was required to register as a sex offender in Louisiana.

Now, 8 years later he is back sitting behind bars. #SMH
