Statute of Limitations Run Out on T.I. & Tiny Las Vegas Sexual Assault Case

This week the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed reports that Atlanta rapper T.I. and his wife, Xscape singer Tiny Harris, were being investigated for multiple sexual assault claims [click here if you missed that]. 

Meanwhile Tip and Tiny catch a break after the statute of limitations run out on an accuser in Las Vegas...
Las Vegas police said on Tuesday that they had received a report of a sexual assault involving rapper T.I. and his wife, but the case was closed because the statute of limitations had expired.
To investigate a sexual assault in Nevada, a report must be made within 20 years. But prior to 2015 the statute of limitations was four years, and because the law is not retroactive, crimes that were alleged to have occurred before 2015 still fall under the four-year limitation, the department said.
“Based on this, the case was closed, which is standard procedure for crimes reported outside of the statute,” Metro said.
