Mystikal is getting ready
Mystikal has secured a lawyer to fight his upcoming rape and kidnapping case.
The Shreveport Times reports that New Orleans-based attorney Timothy Yazbeck will represent the former No Limit rapper in his upcoming trial. Mystikal is accused of several charges related to an alleged sexual assault in and around Shreveport’s Sam’s Town casino in October 2016.
Also facing charges from the incident are 27-year-old Averweone Holman and 42-year-old Tenichia Wafford. Holman is accused of similar charges to Mystikal’s and Wafford will go to court to fight allegations that she attempted to get the victim to recant her story.
Beyond Wafford, other people have also cast doubt on the idea that Holman and Mystikal did anything wrong. Holman’s brother shared his version of events alongside a photo of the accuser and the two men. He wrote:
“3 innocent people are in jail because this 1 girl trying to find a way to get some money. She was ditching her boyfriend to be all up on my brother Lil Hood all night. She offer them some sex and since her boyfriend caught her she trying to flip the script to save her relationship. Now she tryin to take an advantage to get some money. We also have evidence of her coming on to my bro that night. My brother did not do nothing wrong that night, she was just being a hoe that night and got caught by her boyfriend.”
“She was feeling all over my brother (DNA), drinks and food (DNA),” he continued. “That’s not a rape.”
Wafford said she was also surprised by the charges. In a video shared by TMZ the woman emotionally recounted a phone call to the woman, that she claims was a friendly call to check in on a friend.
“That threw me for a loop,” she said. “If I would of knew all that, I wouldn’t have even called her. I just called to check up on a friend. That’s all I was doing.”
“She trying to protect her boyfriend because she ditched him all night to be with another n*gga,” she added, echoing Holman’s account of the incident. She continues by saying that the woman did not claim that she had been hurt in their initial conversation.“And now all of a sudden somebody hurt her[…] So now, all of a sudden, I got a charge because I called her, I called a friend, to ask ‘Are you ok?’”
Wafford broke down as she realized she would have to turn herself in to face the charges.
Mystikal’s next court date is set for Dec. 18, but it won’t be the first time that he’s faced charges of sexual misconduct. He served several years in prison on a sexual battery charge before being released in 2010. He said that the prison term made his success feel like another life.
“It still feels like a dream, man,” he told radio station Q93. “I was gone so long, all the things I achieved, all the accolades I attained, it felt like it was dream. It felt like I’d never done that stuff. But watch how I shake this world up now — I want reparations.”
