Floyd Mayweather's daughter, Iyanna, may spend close to 10 decades of her life behind bars if convicted, after an alleged stabbing incident.
Floyd's youngest daughter, Iyanna Mayweather is set to face the court to plead not guilty over an assault charge.
Amid the novel coronavirus, the 19-year-old has been charged with an act of violence which was perpetrated in her rapper boyfriend's home — NBA Youngboy.
After a heated argument that ensued between Iyanna, and Lapattra Jacobs, her man's ex-lover and baby mama, over who should stay in Youngboy's home, the accused attacked with two knives, leaving the victim injured with cuts on her arms.
Lapattra has not been mute but intends to keep her life under wraps.
Sources revealed that a possible sentence for this type of crime starts from as low as five years to as high as 99 years in Texas. Legal papers from the Harris County District Lawyer, however, stated that Iyanna:
"unlawfully, intentionally and knowingly caused bodily injury to Lapattra Jacobs by cutting her with a knife."
After the attack, Lapattra was rushed to the hospital, while Iyanna, to the Harris County Jail. Apart from her possible long jail term, Miss Mayweather could be fined about $10,000 for the crime.
Reports have it that her lawyer is none other than the prestigious Kurt Schaffer, who is famous for representing celebrities over the years.
Kurt's impressive resume holds that the attorney has had clients like Chad Butler, a.k.a Pimp C, Stayve Thomas, a.k.a Slim Thug, Chace Crawford, and J.Prince, among others. Concerning the present case, Mayweather's lawyer went on to express that:
"Iyanna is doing fine, although she remains shaken by this unfortunate incident."
A few hours after the attack, Youngboy stated that he is "blessed and protected," but the rapper is yet to hint his fans on the progression of things.
As for the victim, Lapattra has not been mute but intends to keep her life under wraps. In an Instagram post, she spoke about the unpleasant attention she is receiving and admitted that her condition isn't all that great
