Mystikal Pleads Not Guilty

Last month New Orleans rapper Mystikal was arrested on rape charges after an acquaintance claimed he held her in his home against her will and beat and raped her while high on meth [click here if you missed that]. 

Mystikal has pleaded not guilty to the charges...

From People Magazine
Mystikal pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges accusing the Grammy-nominated rapper of raping and choking a woman, as well as drug possession, at his Prairiesville, Louisiana, home, the Associated Press reported.
The New Orleans-based performer's attorney, Joel Pearce, proclaimed Mystikal's innocence on all charges following the arraignment in Ascension Parish court in Gonzales, Louisiana.
His charges include first-degree rape (for which he'd be imprisoned for life) as well as simple criminal damage to property, false imprisonment, domestic abuse battery by strangulation, simple robbery, possession of heroin, marijuana, methamphetamine and Xanax and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The two indictments were read aloud in court, though Pearce told the AP he hasn't gotten his hands on copies. "My client doesn't even do drugs, so he has absolutely no idea what they were talking about," the attorney told the outlet of the 51-year-old rapper, whose real name is Michael Tyler.
