Mystikal

In December 2018, rapper Mystikal pleaded not guilty to rape and kidnapping charges in Shreveport.  According to TMZ.com his attorney met with prosecutors and offered the New Orleans rapper a “sweet deal” that Mystikal refused.

“They offered to reduce the aggravated rape charge, which carries a life sentence, to a simple third-degree rape- which carries a 25-year maximum sentence,” TMZ.com said. “They would also agree to drop the second-degree kidnapping charge.

In exchange, Mystikal would have to plead guilty to felony simple rape-which his attorney says he’s unwilling to do.

Mystikal and his defense team contend that the alleged victim in the case is lying and has major credibility issues, so they’re willing to take their chances and let the case play out in court.

The trial is scheduled to start in May.
