ASCENSION PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) – Michael Tyler, also known as Mystikal, and his legal team have hired a digital forensics firm as he fights for his innocence against charges accusing him of raping and choking a woman at his home.

“Some of the most important data in this case is trapped in a mobile phone and social media providers,” Mystikal’s attorney Joel Pearce said in a press release. “I immediately contacted Garrett Discovery to formulate a plan to capture the data so that justice can be served.”

Andrew Garrett, chief executive officer of Garrett Discovery, says, “Mystikal has been charged with serious crimes and our experts will be analyzing the digital evidence to inform counsel and the client as the facts in the case,”.

“Law enforcement and prosecutors have the ability to search homes, arrest and jail those whom they feel are guilty,” Garrett said. “This comes with a great responsibility, but unfortunately, with high caseloads and mounting pressure, we often see cases that are not well developed or have come to the wrong conclusion. Attorney Pierce’s relentless pursuit of the truth will leave no stone unturned.”
