Floyd Mayweather’s daughter, Iyanna, has officially been charged after being arrested for allegedly stabbing the mother of boyfriend NBA Youngboy’s child, and she is now facing many years behind bars.
According to the charging documents, obtained by The Blast, the 19-year-old has been charged with Aggravated Assault With A Deadly Weapon. A serious felony in the state of Texas, and if convicted the charge can carry a VERY lenghly prison sentence.
Sentencing guidelines for this charge range from 5 up to 99 YEARS in state prison and a $10,000 fine.
It should be noted, it doesn’t appear that Yaya has any criminal record, and she has not yet been convicted of any crime. So, it could be much less. Plus, she has a really good lawyer.
According to court records, Yaya has hired famous Houston attorney Kurt Schaffer to defend her in the criminal case.
Schaffer has represented several celebrities over the years, including Chace Crawford and J. Prince. Kent has successfully worked on cases involving Farrah Fawcett; Tom Sizemore; Armie Hammer; Stayve Thomas (Slim Thug); Brad Jordan (Scarface); Chad Butler (Pimp C), his website says.
Mayweather is preparing to plead not guilty, Schaffer told Bossip.com, and she is due back in court in August of 2020. We broke the story, she was also ordered to stay away from the alleged victim, Lapattra Jacobs.
In the legal documents, the Harris County District Attorney alleges that Yaya Mayweather — “unlawfully, intentionally and knowingly caused bodily injury to Lapattra Jacobs…by cutting (her) with a knife, and (she) used and exhibited a deadly weapon, namely a knife”
As we reported, Mayweather was involved in an altercation with boyfriend, NBA Youngboy’s Ex-GF, that turned violent. It was reported while arguing the two women made their way into the kitchen of Youngboy’s Houston home — where Mayweather picked up a knife and stabbed the Jacobs in the arms.
Iyanna Mayweather was arrested and booked into Harris County Jail after her alleged victim was rushed to a nearby hospital and underwent emergency surgery on her arms.
