Lil Mosey claimed that "God finally brought the truth to light" after being found not guilty of second-degree rape.
On Thursday, a jury found Lil Mosey not guilty of rape (March 2).
According to TMZ, Lil Mosey was acquitted of second-degree rape. Authorities charged him and two other men in 2020 with raping a woman at a party in Randle, Washington.
Police alleged Lil Mosey and Francisco Prater, a 19-year-old male, had intercourse with a lady "when she was unable of consent due to being physically helpless or mentally impaired." Their 20-year-old co-defendant, Joshua Darrow, reportedly restrained the woman.
In 2021, Lil Mosey, real name Lathan Echols, was charged with second-degree rape. He entered a not guilty plea. If convicted, the Washington native could face life in prison.
The trial for the Interscope Records rapper began on February 21. He was put on trial with Darrow. Prater will face his own trial.
Lil Mosey took to social media to celebrate his acquittal. On Thursday, he responded to the jury's decision with an Instagram post.
“Spent 2 years of my life going thru the storm and I’m happy to say that God finally brought the truth to light,” he wrote. “Thank you.”
The rape trial was initially set to begin in 2022. Due to scheduling difficulties and witness concerns, it was forced to be postponed until 2023.
