Attorney Demands Criminal Investigation of T.I. and Tiny Sexual Assault Claims

Last month rapper T.I. and his wife, R&B singer/songwriter Tiny Harris, were accused of being sexual predators by a former friend who amplified claims by dozens of women [click here if you missed that]. 

Now an attorney is demanding an official criminal investigation...

A lawyer is looking to open criminal investigations into allegations of sexual abuse he says his clients have made against T.I. and Tiny Harris, who have strongly denied the claims.
In the weeks since allegations against the couple were first made, attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn has been contacted by over 30 "women, survivors and witnesses" with "a myriad of allegations of forced drugging, kidnapping, rape, and intimidation," according to a release from his office that was obtained by PEOPLE.
The allegations "span over fifteen years" and are "eerily consistent," according to the release. The individual claims from his clients reportedly include allegations of being "coerced by Tiny to ingest drugs" or being "unknowingly administered drugs to impair the victims' ability to consent" to "sexual acts."
Blackburn said he has sent letters to officials in Georgia and California, seeking to open investigations "under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) and Georgia's Rape, Kidnapping, RICO, and Terroristic Threats Statues."
