Rape charges against Trillville rapper Don P have been dismissed by the Dekalb County District Attorney’s office due to lack of evidence.
The rapper (born Donnell Prince) had been charged with rape and two counts of aggravated sodomy, stemming from an alleged Dec. 16 assault. Dekalb County police had accused Don P and another man of assaulting and raping a 16-year-old girl, an accusation that he flatly denied.
Attorneys for Don P. confirmed with AllHipHop.com that the charges were dismissed, after the District Attorney’s office acknowledged that they could not show probable cause that the incident had occurred.
“I just want to let everyone know that the case was dismissed because the DA had lack of evidence and they didn’t there was no probable cause,” Don P told AllHipHop.com. “It was too many people on the street saying that the girl wanted money. I guess she told people she wanted to get money from me.”
“Once they started investigating, witnesses from the party came forward to give their story of what happened,” Don P continued. “The guy who brought her to the party said that on the way over the girl was like ‘I love Don P, he’s my favorite one out the group…I wanna have sex with him.’”
Don P said the case was dismissed over a month ago, on Feb. 24.
“Sorry for not letting everybody know right when it happened, but I’ve been working the whole time that the case was going on and not really thinking about it,” he said. “In the end, everything worked out like it was supposed too.”
Trillville is best known for their hits “Neva Eva” and “Some Cut.”
Don P. also revealed that he was working on a DVD similar to Girls Gone Wild.
“[The DVD] was gonna be a hardcore porn at first, but now it’s gonna be like Girls Gone Wild. All the s**t on the road, in the hotel room. It’s like in the middle [of production]. We got girls from city to city to city coming to the hotel. It’s gonna make everybody wanna be a rapper.”
A new album, Trillville Reloaded is scheduled to hit stores this spring.
