After finally getting out after serving a six-year prison sentence in 2010, it looks like Mystikal is headed back to jail. The New Orleans rapper has been ordered to serve an additional three months behind bars due to a probation violation in February, the Advocate reports.
Two months ago, Mystikal was arrested on misdemeanor charges for domestic abuse battery. Now Louisiana State District Judge Tony Marabella has ordered the 41-year-old rapper to return to prison for violating the terms of his probation, which required him to remain arrest and conviction-free.
Mystikal's domestic abuse charge was against the mother of his two children. His lawyer, Roy Maughan Jr., described the event as "an unfortunate incident between two people who have cared a lot about each other for 10 years.’’
The "Shake It Fast" rapper's probation was to have lasted five years. He had been working on a comeback album with Mannie Fresh after signing with Cash Money Records last November. Mystikal's original six-year prison term was for sexual battery and extortion. The new three-month sentence will begin May 14.
