Mystikal has filed a motion in his ongoing r*pe case, requesting that a gag order be put in place in order to protect his privacy, according to court docs. On Thursday (March 16), documents obtained by The Advocate reveal that the New Orleans rapper’s new defense attorney, Tiffany Myles Crosby filed a request for a gag order to be placed on his r*pe and false imprisonment case in Ascension Parish (a small parish outside Lousiana), citing an “inordinate amount of publicity. If approved, the gag order would bar attorneys for either side from commenting on the latest case to “any individual or entity,” including media outlets like radio, television or newspapers. The gag order would also apply to “all potential witnesses and law enforcement officials who either will or might testify at the trial of this case or who have information” about it. Mystikal, whose real name is Michael Lawrence Tyler, is expected to appear in court Monday (March 20) before a Louisiana judge. The rapper is currently facing life in prison, after being indicted on a charge of first-degree r*pe stemming from an alleged incident at his home in July 2022. The former No Limit rapper was formally charged with r*pe along with nine other criminal counts by a grand jury this past September. If convicted, the r*pe charge comes with a mandatory life sentence under state law.
