Lil Mosey Charged With Rape, Wanted by Police
UPDATE (April 26):
Lil Mosey's lawyer, Amy Muth, has provided this statement to XXL. "Mr. Echols is innocent, and we fully expect him to cleared of these charges," Muth said.
He is scheduled to be in court in Lewis County in Washington on Tuesday (April 27).
Lewis County Prosecutor Jonathan Meyer provided documents to XXL regarding the rape accusations against Lil Mosey. The alleged rape occurred on or about Jan. 6, 2020, at a cabin in Randle, Wash. Two women friends, identified only by the initials M.K.J. and J.M.H., are included in the documents as going to the cabin to hang out with Lil Mosey and his friends on that date. J.M.H. claims that Lil Mosey raped her.
She admitted to having consensual sex with the rapper in a vehicle outside of the cabin. Later on when all parties were inside the cabin, a man named Francisco "Cisco" Prater, an alleged friend of Mosey's, reportedly carried J.M.H. upstairs and she claimed to have hit her head on something. She recalled being laid down on a bed and blacked out. When she woke up, J.M.H. claimed Mosey was on top of her, pushing her legs up and apart while he was having sex with her. She said she blacked out again and then woke up to find Prater forcing his penis inside of her. Mosey allegedly walked out of the room at that time.
J.M.H. had injuries she could not explain, including bruising on her arm, neck and inner knee.
Lil Mosey is reportedly wanted by police in his home state of Washington.
According to a report from TMZ on Thursday (April 22), the rapper, born Lathan Echols, has been charged with second-degree rape stemming from an alleged incident in January of last year. And due to his failure to appear in court on Wednesday (April 21), he is now wanted by law enforcement. The "Blueberry Faygo" rhymer was reportedly charged with second-degree rape several weeks ago ahead of this week's scheduled court date.
Last year, a woman claims that she and a friend went to a cabin to visit Lil Mosey, but alleges that she was raped by the 19-year-old artist and another man. An affidavit obtained by the media outlet includes information that one of the alleged victims agreed to have sex with Lil Mosey in a car, but the woman said she was no longer coherent after drinking White Claw alcoholic beverages and champagne.
That woman claims that Mosey later got on top of her and pushed her legs apart as he had sex with her. She also recounts experiencing pain in her leg muscles as Lil Mosey continued pushing her legs. The woman additionally says that she blacked out a second time and awoke to the other unnamed man forcing himself on her.
The woman claims to have sustained bruising on her arm, neck and inner knee. The report adds that the woman claims she also received a message from someone at the cabin, which said the guys were talking about "training two girls." It's unclear if the "two girls" refers to the woman making the allegations against Mosey and her friend.
If Lil Mosey is convicted, he faces life in prison, according to TMZ.
Last year, Mosey faced separated legal issues in when he was arrested on a felony gun charge in Burbank, Calif. in August. He was taken into custody, along with two others, following a traffic stop just after 1 a.m. The rapper, his security and an unnamed minor were pulled over because their SUV did not have a license plate. Police later discovered three loaded guns, one of which was allegedly in the minor's possession. Four credit cards were also found in the bodyguard's bag. None of the cards belonged to any of the parties in the car. All three people in the vehicle including Mosey were arrested on the same felony charge of possessing a concealed weapon. Mosey was released on a $35,000 bond.
XXL has reached out to a rep for Lil Mosey for a comment on this matter.
