Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris and his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, won't face charges for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting a Los Angeles woman in 2005.

Prosecutors declined to move forward with the case because the 10-year statute of limitations had expired, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.

The couple's accuser filed a police report earlier this year, claiming T.I. and Tiny drugged and assaulted her sometime in early 2005 following a meeting at a club.

A similar case in Las Vegas was also dropped recently after the couple was accused of drugging and sexually assaulting another woman in 2010. Prosecutors also determined that the statute of limitations had expired in that case.

Back in February, lawyer Tyrone A. Blackburn, who was representing 11 alleged sexual abuse victims, called for an investigation into the former power couple.

In a letter sent to state and federal authorities in Georgia and California, he urged them to look further into the claims of "sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, terroristic threats and false imprisonment" against the pair.

T.I. and Tiny strenuously denied the claims through their lawyer, Steve Sadow:

"Clifford (T.I.) and Tameka Harris deny in the strongest possible terms these unsubstantiated and baseless allegations. We are confident that if these claims are thoroughly and fairly investigated, no charges will be forthcoming.

"These allegations are nothing more than the continuation of a sordid shakedown campaign that began on social media. The Harrises implore everyone not to be taken in by these obvious attempts to manipulate the press and misuse the justice system."

Hide your wives and daughters! Rapper Kodak Black avoided a prison sentence after he plead guilty to raping an underage girl.

A judge handed down a 10-year suspended sentence and 18 months of probation after he plead guilty to assault and battery charges.

The "Zeze" rap star originally faced a felony count for first-degree criminal sexual conduct relating to an incident in a South Carolina hotel with a teenage girl back in 2016.

Kodak was accused of pushing the minor child into a wall and onto a bed, before biting her breast and neck.

Kodak denied the allegations at the time, but he has since acknowledged his rapey behavior, after spending 2 years in prison on unrelated charges.

During his court hearing, Kodak confessed to biting the female, and issued an apology.

In exchange, he was handed a 10-year suspended sentence and placed on 18 months of supervised state release, allowing him to victimize other gullible females.

Thanks to his high-power attorney, Kodak won't have to wear an ankle bracelet, but he must keep his appointments with a probation officer. He is also prohibited from drinking or doing drugs, and he cannot possess any guns, according to TMZ.

The deal is good news for the Florida-based rapper, who was handed a get-out-of-prison card when his weapons charges were commuted by former U.S. President Donald Trump in January.

Kodak has since dedicated himself to giving back to the community while he works to get his rap career back on track.

A Louisville judge sparked outrage after she dismissed the case of a mentally deranged man who raped an 8-year-old girl and crushed her skull with a shovel.

Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Annie O’Connell, who also presided over the Breonna Taylor case, ruled that Cane Madden was mentally incompetent to stand trial after he raped a child who was playing outside her home in a majority black community in 2019.

On March 11, O'Connell dismissed Madden's rape case citing a Kentucky state law that says a defendant can only be held or hospitalized against their will if he can benefit from treatment, WDRB reports.

Madden was arrested and briefly hospitalized multiple times in the past. He walked free every time.

On Monday, March 22, members of the Kentucky House of Representatives voted unanimously to close the loophole in the law.

The obscure loophole had allowed the criminally insane to repeatedly walk free because they hadn't met Kentucky's criteria for involuntary hospitalization.

Madden has a history of mental illness, including a borderline personality, poor impulse control and conduct disorder.

In a previous rape case in 2017, Madden bit off parts of the victim's face, but was released back into the community. Judge O'Connell also presided over that case.

Philadelphia PD

A Philadelphia man was arrested and charged with raping a customer inside a Macy's restroom.

Jaleel Ugdah, 22, was arrested Wednesday after surveillance footage showed the rape suspect leaving the store and walking into a train station.

The incident happened on Sunday morning at the Center City Macy's. The accused rapist entered the women's restroom and hid in a stall.

"He went into that store at 11:11... Within three minutes, he was in the bathroom," Philadelphia Police Capt. Mark Burgmann told reporters at a news conference Tuesday.

Burgmann said the suspect, who was armed with two BBQ skewers, waited in a stall for 20 minutes until a 55-year-old woman entered the restroom.

Uqdah reportedly jumped over the top of the stall and accosted the woman.

"While she's in the stall, he came over the top of the stall... threatened her, dragged her into a stall a little further down and assaulted her," Burgmann said.

The suspect threatened to stab the woman with one of the skewers if she screamed. He stole $60 from her before leaving the store.

Surveillance footage aired on local news broadcasts prompted numerous tips that led police to Uqdah.

Uqdah's "distinctive" walk helped lead detectives to him, Burgmann told reporters.

Uqdah was charged with rape, robbery, aggravated assault, sexual assault and involuntary sexual intercourse. He was also charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure, indecent assault, false imprisonment, theft and other crimes, the NY Daily News reported.

Department store security staff are trained not to stop men from entering women's restrooms due to transgender laws.

Women who fear being raped in women's restrooms are told to get over their fears, and that they are "on the wrong side of history."

A Maryland man who was released from a Virginia prison during a coronavirus outbreak was arrested for killing his rape victim.

Ibrahim Bouaichi, who was previously jailed on rape charges, was arrested for murder in the death of Karla Dominguez, of Alexandria, Va.

Bouaichi, 33, was released from jail in April due to an outbreak of the coronavirus, police say. He is currently in a hospital in grave condition from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Bouaichi was initially arrested in Virginia in October 2019 on charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction and burglary. Dominguez testified against Bouaichi at a preliminary hearing last December.

Bouaichi was held without bond until he was released from jail in April. His rape trial, which was scheduled for March 30, was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Bouaichi's lawyers said in their motion for bond that "social distancing and proper disinfecting measures are impossible while incarcerated."

His attorneys also worried that visiting their client in jail would expose themselves to "contaminated air and surfaces."

Prosecutors objected to his release from jail, but the judge overruled their objections and released Bouaichi on $25,000 bond, with stipulations that he only leave his Maryland home for meetings with "lawyers or pretrial services officials."

Bouaichi broke the terms of his pre-trial release when he was spotted at a Wendy's drive-thru in his hometown of Greenbelt, Md., according to the Washington Post.

He resisted arrest and rammed a cop car with his vehicle, the Post reported. He was hit with additional charges of assault with a deadly weapon and traffic violations.

He was released from jail on May 11, as authorities were unaware of his rape case in Virginia.

Police say Bouaichi returned to Alexandria, Va. on July 29 and fatally shot Dominguez outside her apartment.

After police appealed to the public for help locating Bouaichi, he was spotted on Wednesday, Aug. 5, and led federal marshals and Alexandria police on a high-speed chase. The chase ended when Bouaichi crashed, authorities said.

Bouaichi shot himself as police approached his car to arrest him.

The judge who released Bouaichi from jail in April retired from the bench in June.

Santa Clara County DA

A former NFL Pro Bowl defensive tackle was convicted of raping his former babysitter, who is mentally disabled.

Dana Stubblefield, 49, was convicted Monday of rape by force, oral copulation by force and false imprisonment.

He was acquitted of raping a person incapable of giving consent, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Jurors also convicted Stubblefield of using a gun during the assault.

Stubblefield allegedly lured the 31-year-old woman, who is developmentally disabled, to his home in 2015 under the pretense that he was interviewing for a potential babysitter.

The day before the interview, Stubblefield contacted the woman on a babysitting website and arranged the interview, prosecutors said.

The interview lasted about 20 minutes. The woman later received a text message from Stubblefield saying he wanted to pay her for her time for that day, and she went back to his house.

After raping her, Stubblefield gave the victim $80 and let her go. The woman immediately went to police and reported the rape.

Defense attorneys argued the woman consented to sex and there was no rape. Allen Sawyer, attorney for the defendant, said the incident was a "paid encounter for sex."

He said the defense team will file an appeal and seek a new trial.

Stubblefield was drafted by the 49ers in 1993 and was twice named NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1993 and 1997.

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison on charges of sexual assault and rape in a New York court on Wednesday.

Weinstein, 67, entered the court in a wheelchair to face sentencing after a jury convicted him last month of sexually assaulting former production assistant Mimi Haley and raping former aspiring actress Jessica Mann.

Weinstein is seen arriving to New York State Supreme Court on Feb. 24. The father of 5 was transferred last week to New York's Rikers Island jail after having a stent inserted in his heart during surgery at Bellevue Hospital.

Judge James Burke imposed a lengthy sentence of 20 years for the assault on Haley and three years for a third degree rape on Mann, to be served consecutively. He was also sentenced to five years of post-sentence supervision.

According to Variety.com, Weinstein expressed "deep remorse" for his actions but also claimed to be "confused" by his conviction, citing his "serious friendships" with the two victims, and claimed men were not being given "due process" when accused of sexual misconduct.

Four other women who testified against Weinstein during the case were in court for the hearing. Scores of others have also accused the shamed movie mogul of misconduct ranging from harassment to rape, allegations he has denied.

It took two arrests for Nicki Minaj's husband Kenneth Petty to finally register as a sex offender in California.

Petty, 41, is now listed as a sex offender in the California Department of Justice's database, Page Six reports.

Petty was arrested last week by federal agents when he failed to register after a previous arrest in November 2019. He was released on $20,000 bond in November and advised to register, but he refused.

Petty was 16 when he was convicted in 1995 of attempting to rape a 16-year-old girl. Despite registering in California, he still faces charges for not registering last year.

Nicki, real name Onika Tanya Maraj, was embarrassed and humiliated after the arrest, but she said she is "standing" by her man.

"Kenneth's arrest is embarrassing but it is not a relationship killer whatsoever. She has known Kenneth forever and knows the person he is and is in love with him and she wants this to go way as quickly as possible," a source tells Hollywood Life.

The source said Nicki, 37, will address her husband's March 4 arrest on an upcoming episode of her Queen Radio show.

St. Charles County Jail

A 17-year-old boy was charged with raping his 11-year-old sister after the girl gave birth to a boy in a bathtub at her St. Charles, Missouri home.

The teenager was charged with statutory rape, incest and statutory sodomy of a person younger than 12 last week. Their parents were charged with child endangerment, according to a probable cause statement.

Police say the girl's parents did not provide medical care to the child after she gave birth in a bathtub at their suburban St. Louis home, according to FOX 4 News.

The police were called when the teenager brought the newborn boy to a local hospital. The baby still had the umbilical cord and placenta attached and a low body temperature of 90 degrees.

The teenager initially claimed the baby had been dropped off on his porch by an ex-girlfriend.

When he couldn't provide the ex-girlfriend's name, he finally admitted the baby was his and that his minor sister had given birth at home.

The parents claimed they were not aware their daughter was pregnant or that she was allegedly being sexually assaulted by her brother, according to the probable cause statement.

During an interrogation, the teenager told police he had sex with his sister about 100 times but did not know she was pregnant.

The baby boy, who was born prematurely, remains hospitalized. The 11-year-old girl is in the care of relatives.

Police say the children's father was in the U.S. illegally and had been previously deported back to his home country.

All three suspects are being held at the St. Charles County Jail. Bail was set at $10,000 cash only for the mother, $100,000 cash only for the father and $25,000 cash only for the teenager, according to court records.

The three suspects were not named to protect the identity of the minor girl.

Nicki Minaj's brother Jelani Maraj was sentenced to 25 years to life for raping a minor child in 2015.

Maraj, 41, will serve a minimum of 25 years in prison following the guilty verdict in his child rape trial, TMZ reported.

Judge Robert McDonald sentenced Maraj in a New York courtroom on Monday, Jan. 27. The Nassau County D.A. told TMZ, "We hope that today's verdict will help the family in the healing process."

Maraj was found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child in 2017. He was accused of raping his then-11-year-old stepdaughter in 2015.

"He had sex with that 11-year-old girl sometimes four times a week," Assistant District Attorney Emma Slain told jurors in 2017.

Nicki, 37, never testified during the trial -- despite claims made by her brother's defense team that she would.

Nicki, whose real name is Onika Tanya Maraj, was expected to testify that Maraj's ex-wife, Jacqueline Robinson, tried to extort her for millions in 2015.
