Migos member Takeoff will not face criminal charges over sexual assault allegations made last year.
In 2020 Takeoff was sued by the woman – identified as Jane Doe – who claimed that he raped her at a house party on June 23rd.
The woman is suing Takeoff for sexual battery, false imprisonment, and assault, as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress.
The suit was filed last year, with Takeoff’s lawyer Drew Findling called the allegations “patently and provably false.”
Jane Doe is being represented by Neama Rahmani, who commented at the time: “We hope that by initiating civil proceedings, witnesses will come forward, more evidence will be discovered, and law enforcement will give this serious case the attention it deserves.”
The case will not be heard in criminal court, with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office declining to prosecute the case due to insufficient evidence.
Pitchfork confirmed the news, and spoke to Rahmani who issued the following statement: “Our client is disappointed in the decision of the Los Angeles County District Attorney, who has once again shown he is soft on crime and cares more about the rights of criminal defendants than victims of sexual assault. She looks forward to receiving the justice she deserves in her civil case.”
Takeoff has not commented publicly on the case.
