American rapper, singer, songwriter Lathan Moses Echols popularly referred to as Lil Mosey has been found not guilty of second-degree rape, following a trial in Washington state.

If you don't recall, back in April 2021, Lil Mosey who was charged with second degree rape. A week prior, it was reported that the rapper was charged in an alleged incident that happened on January 6, 2021 in Randle, Washington. 

Mosey who was 19-year-old at the time, was charged  along with another man (Francisco Prater, 19), of sexually assaulting a woman who met up with them before heading to their final destination.


The said lady sued him claiming that she and a girl friend of hers were both raped by the "Live this Wild" hit-maker and Prater after going to see them at a cabin.

If the jury found him guilty and convicted him Lil Mosey was potentially looking at a maximum sentence of life in prison.

However, the young star got lucky as the prosecutors decided to use a polygraph test on him and he passed with flying colours.


Since taking his lie detector test, Lil Mosey has now been declared not guilty and a free man, with the judge ordering all charges against him dropped.

It comes as a surprise and still no surprise to many as the 21-year-old fast rising artist had maintained from the very beginning that he had done nothing wrong and gave a not guilty plea when the case began.

According to the case affidavit, obtained by TMZ, turns out one of the women who had sued Lil Mosey consented to have sex with him while in a car but afterwards blacked out after drinking.

The lady claims she later woke up to him and the other man forcing themselves on her.

In her report the said lady said she had bruising on her arm, neck, and knee as a result. Docs later revealed the alleged victim admitted to having consensual sex with the rapper in the past.

 Mosey blew into fame back in 2017 following the release of his single "Pull Up"
