Via KSLA.com:

Michael Lawrence Tyler, a 46-year-old Prairieville resident whose performance name is Mystikal, faces one count each of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping.

Tyler has been in Caddo Correctional Center since surrendering to authorities Aug. 21.

His next court date is Jan. 18 and could include a motion to reduce his $3 million bond, the Caddo district attorney’s office reports.

Tyler is one of three people who have been charged in connection with the assault.

A Caddo grand jury also has indicted:

Averweone Darnell Holman, 26, of Shreveport, on one count each of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping; and, Tenichia Monieck Wafford, 42, of Harker Heights, Texas, on one count of obstruction of justice.

They too remain in Caddo Correctional.

This is not looking good for Mystikal.
