Mystikal Pleads Guilty To Sex Charges

Mystikal pleaded guilty today (June 26) to extortion

and sexual battery charges claiming that he forced his hairstylist to perform

sexual acts on him and two bodyguards.

"I'm glad that it's getting behind me,"

Mystikal said after copping his plea.

Mystikal was facing an aggravated rape charge,

which could have landed him in prison for life. By pleading guilty to the lesser

charges, the rapper was sentenced to five years probation.

He still faces a September 25 sentencing date

for sexual battery.

Persecutors said that Mystikal confronted his

hairdresser at the rapper's Baton Rogue

home when she came over to braid his hair.

He accused her of stealing checks and allegedly

told her to "get into the bedroom and take your clothes off."

Prosecutors alleged Mystikal promised to not

press charges if the woman did something "degrading."

The platinum selling rapper allegedly told the

woman to give oral sex to him and his two bodyguards, Leland "Pokie"

Ellis, 37 and Vercy "V" Carter, 35.

The three men videotaped the sexual acts, which

Prosecutors said included intercourse.

Mystikal's attorney, David Bourland said that

the rapper didn't agree with all of the charges aimed at him, but did agree

that sexual battery took place, hence the guilty plea.
