American Hip Hop act, Mystikal was indicted by a Caddo Parish grand

jury on Tuesday with one count of first-degree rape, and one count of

second-degree kidnapping after being connected to a 2016 assault in a

Shreveport casino.

A DNA evidence in August was said to have linked him to the rape case,

soon after an arrest warrant was issued for the New Orleans rapper

nearly 14 years after his previous rape conviction.

According to KSLA News, the 46-year-old rapper, born Michael Lawrence

Tyler, who was among one of three people allegedly involved in the

assault was arrested and charged last month after he turned himself in

to the authorities. His bond is set at $3million. Others indicted were

Averweone Darnell Holman, 26, and Tenichia Monieck Wafford, 42.

Holman received a similar ruling as Mystikal and has a $3 million

bail. As for Wafford, she was slammed with one count of obstruction of

justice. Her bond is set at $500,000.

Mystikal who is not new to crimes pleaded guilty to sexual battery and

extortion charges in 2003, and served in prison until January 2010.

Later, he also pleaded guilty to two federal misdemeanor counts of

failing to file tax returns on a total of $1.7 million he earned in

1998 and 1999. A judge allowed him to serve the federal sentence

concurrently with the state at the David Wade Correctional Center in

north Louisiana, near Homer.
