Rapper’s Criminal History Dates Back Nearly Two Decades, With Several Sexual Battery, Rape Allegations Against Him Over The Years
Mystikal has since pleaded not guilty to all of the charges, with his attorney calling the allegations “bogus,” adding that the rapper was being extorted because of his criminal record, which dates back about two decades.
In 2003, he began a six-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to sexual battery, the outlet reports.
