Rapper Mystikal enters a not guilty plea to accusations of rape, robbery, abuse, and drug possession.
Rapper Mystikal, who was nominated for a Grammy, has entered a not guilty plea to accusations that he raped and choked a woman at his Louisiana home and had drug possession on his person.

After the hearing on Monday in Gonzales, Louisiana's Ascension Parish Court, which is just 15 miles from Baton Rouge, the 51-year-old entertainer, whose actual name is Michael Tyler, was declared innocent of all counts, according to attorney Joel Pearce.

Charges against him include simple robbery, false imprisonment, domestic violence battery by strangulation, first-degree rape (for which he faces a life sentence), possession of heroin, marijuana, methamphetamine, Xanax, and drug paraphernalia.

Though Pearce told the AP he hasn't had copies, the two indictments were read aloud in court. The 51-year-old musician, whose actual name is Michael Tyler, has no knowledge of what they were discussing because he doesn't even use narcotics, the lawyer told the publication.

Pearce further asserted that he is unaware of the alleged damage that Mystikal's accuser claims he caused, despite AP's reporting that the accusation relates to her damaged Apple Watch band.

Bond may come up during Mystikal's hearing on October 17th, according to Pearce. He also said that the rapper's 2003 guilty plea to sexual battery and extortion will allegedly be brought up by the prosecution.

At the time, Mystikal was accused of coercing his hairstylist into performing videotaped sex acts with him and two bodyguards while facing charges of aggravated rape. According to BBC News, the Tarantula artist was eventually given a six-year prison term. He was released in 2010 and made to register in Louisiana as a sex offender.

According to the AP, Mystikal was also charged with additional counts of rape and kidnapping in 2017 and spent 18 months in jail before being freed on a $3 million bond. He was cleared of all accusations after a second grand jury decided not to indict him.

Mystikal's attorney stated to AP on Monday that despite the fact that Mystikal had previously admitted guilt to a lesser offence in Baton Rouge, "people keep saying it's his third time to be charged [with rape]." And after a grand jury indicted him, they dropped the charges against him in Caddo Parish.
