Mystikal was summoned back in court and this time was joined by his new lawyer, Joel Pearce for another hearing. Pearce has managed to include two key witnesses of his choosing to be a part of the schedule.
Another hearing will take place in March to determine if social media records will be looked at. Pearce went in and backed his client.
“I don’t think that anyone should be made to stand trial for number one, something they did not do,” Pearce said. “And number two, something that’s caught up in this political movement, the #metoo movement. Michael is not guilty of anything.”
