According to Atlanta’s CBS 46 news report, the lawyer representing eleven of the alleged victims of T.I. and Tiny’s sexual assaults are now claiming that the couple’s attorney tried to make a deal with him in hopes of ending their impending legal matter.
“Steve Sadow reached out to me looking to make a deal on behalf of T.I. and Tiny,” Tyrone Blackburn’s statement read. “And I told Steve Sadow my clients want justice. So, if the deal involves Tiny and T.I. turning themselves in and admitting to the crimes they have committed then fine we got a deal. But if it does not, then I would prefer the investigators do that work and to bring criminal charges against Tiny and T.I. for what they’ve done throughout the years.”
Sadow denies those claims but admits that he did have a conversation with Blackburn in an attempt to get any information from the accusers to which he said Blackburn denied.
“I understand that at a virtual press conference today, attorney Blackburn claimed the Harrises reached out to him through me to supposedly make a deal. That is patently false,” Sadow said. “I reached out to see if he would share any information since his name was posted on Instagram as the attorney for Sabrina Peterson. Blackburn repeatedly refused to provide the names of his accuser-clients or any corroborating or supporting evidence of his groundless claims. The Harrises repeat that they are confident if a thorough and fair investigation is conducted, no charges will be brought.”
T.I. and Tiny are being accused of sexual abuse, kidnapping, terroristic threats, false imprisonment and forced ingestion of illegal narcotics.
As previously reported, Blackburn has reached out to prosecutors in California and Georgia in an attempt to have the couple formally charged with the above crimes.
