With a tumultuous 2018, Mystikal’s representatives have received news that his bond was being set at $3 million. According to TMZ, Mystikal’s attorney Joel Pearce is gathering financial contributions from the rappers’ friends and family to free him. Some of the money will also come from a recently-signed record deal which will have Mystikal drop three separate albums.
Pearce did not mention what the total money gathered is at the moment, however, he is confident Mystikal will be out on bail by the end of next week. Mystikal has been given a new judge in the case over his first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping charges.
“I don’t think that anyone should be made to stand trial for number one, something they did not do,” Pearce previously told the media. “And number two, something that’s caught up in this political movement, the #MeToo movement. Michael is not guilty of anything.”
All that’s left for now is for the label distributor to forward some money to set the Rapper free. If this does not happen, Mystikal will simply not receive a pardon.
