Mystikal, aka Michael Taylor was sentenced to six years in prison for sexual battery. The charge that Mystikal pleaded guilty to was that he and 2 bodyguards accused his hairsylist of stealing 80,000 and then forcing her to perform oral sex on the rapper. Mystikal made a video tape of the assault which was shown as evidend. The judge, Tony Marabella, said the video proved the sexual acts were not consensual.
The judge said “If it weren’t for the victim, his sentence would have been the maximum 10 years…The court is convinced that the defendant believes he is above the law and can take the law into his own hands.”
Even though he admitted to the crime, Mystikal still said, “I was ready to go all the way, full fledge ’cause it’s the principle…The person that was involved in it was real dear to me, I still don’t believe it. I refuse to believe they could do something like this to me after all I had done for them. That’s like taking in a foster child and he kills you or robs you. That’s serious, that’s someone I considered to be a true sister.” “You got to be a little more careful with your love and your trust, you cant just throw it out there like that even though my trust was earned with this person…This was five years in, man. I couldn’t have saw that coming in a million years, I would have bet my life on it.”
