U.S. District Judge James Brady, who handled sentencing, agreed to allow Mystikal to serve the sentence concurrently with the term for his previous state conviction on sexual battery charges.

Tyler was sentenced to six years in prison for a videotaped attack on his former hairstylist. He pled guilty to forcing the woman to perform oral sex as repayment of a “debt” after accusing her of stealing $80,000 worth of checks from him.
