Sex abuse charges dropped against T.I. and wife Tiny Harris


T.I. and his wife Tiny Harris will not faces charges of sexual abuse because the ten-year statue of limitations on the case has expired.

“Without the strength and weaknesses of the evidence being evaluated, the case is declined due to the expiration of the Statute of Limitations,” Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office told the court, according to People.

In May, the Los Angeles Police Department launched an investigation after a woman accused the couple of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 2005. Later that month, attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn said he was representing multiple women claiming to have been sexually assaulted by the couple during a “span over fifteen years.”

T.i. and Tiny have consistently denied the allegations.

“Mr. and Mrs. Harris are pleased, but not surprised, by the District Attorney’s decision to dismiss these meritless allegations,” their attorney Shawn Holley said in statement following Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announcement. “We appreciate the DA’s careful review of the case and are grateful to be able to put the matter behind us and move on.”

“S*** didn’t happen, the “Live Your Life” rapper said recently on the Big Facts Live podcast, as reported by Complex.
