Mystikal is once again in trouble with the law after being charged with rape over the weekend in Louisiana. Police are stating that Mystikal, real name Michael Lawrence, and a man identified as Averweone Holman, 26, are accused of the sexual assault of a woman in Shreveport, Louisiana. Also implicated in the assault is a woman identified as Tenichia Wafford, 42.
According to KSLA News 12, Holman was arrested Friday, August 18, in Killeen, Texas and charged with first-degree rape. Holman’s bond has been set at $2M. Mystikal is still being sought by police also on a charge of first-degree rape. At this time, he is not in police custody, and his bond was announced to also be $2M. Wafford is being sought after by police on charges of accessory after the fact to first-degree rape. Her bond is set at $200K. She is accused of trying to convince the victim of the sexual assault to drop charges against Mystikal and Holman.
Mystikal faced charges of sexual assault from a 2003 case in which he pleaded guilty to sexual battery and extortion. He was sentenced to jail and released in 2010 on five years probation and was required to register as a sex offender in Louisiana. He was quoted as stating about his sex offender status at the time, “I don’t do the pity party thing, I have to participate in sex offender groups and stuff like that; it don’t stop your life, man …I have the same fears that most parents have, I don’t have an offense against no young kids, or nothing like that, which don’t [sic] make my offense no better, but still, protect your kids, man, protect your kids, our kids are the most important thing we have.”
If you see Mystikal, police are asking the public to call Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
