Iyanna Mayweather risks up to 20 years for stabbing incident


Iyanna Mayweather, daughter of champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., is facing up to 20 years in prison for a recent stabbing incident.

According to court documents obtained by XXL Friday April 10, Iyanna was charged with a serious assault with a lethal weapon on April 4 for stabbing a woman who is said to be the mother of her grandson YoungBoy Never Broke Again. The incident took place at the rapper’s home in Houston. Although it has not been confirmed whether Iyanna’s crime is a first or second degree crime, a lawyer representing Mayweather said XXL today she faces two to twenty years in prison on charges.

The lawyer said the Texas murder law provided for 99 years in prison, but no assault.

“If you stab someone or shoot someone and they don’t die, then it’s a serious assault, which is two to twenty years,” added Mayweather’s legal counsel.

The Texas Penal Code states that under state law, an individual convicted of first degree aggravated assault can be sentenced to five to 99 years or life in prison. The costs also include a fine not exceeding $ 10,000.

The state penal code also states that a person convicted of second degree criminal assault is sentenced to between two and 20 years less, with a maximum fine of $ 10,000.

Mayweather was arrested and taken into custody at Harris County Prison in Houston on April 3 following the rapper’s knife incident. TMZ reported that NBA YoungBoy and the alleged victim, Lapattra Lashai Jacobs, were at the home of the Baton Rouge, Louisiana native when Iyanna arrived and told Jacobs to leave. The women exchanged words and things degenerated, eventually becoming physical. Iyanna allegedly grabbed two knives and stabbed Jacobs twice.

Mayweather was released on April 30 for a $ 30,000 bond.
