U of L signee Sharieff Rhaheed-Muhammad arrested on felony sex-related charge

USA TODAY Sports

U of L signee Sharieff Rhaheed-Muhammad, a star linebacker at Fort Pierce Central High School in Florida, is in some pretty serious trouble.

Rhaheed-Muhammad, 17, was arrested on a felony charge of lewd lascivious behavior - victim age 12 to 16 after officials determined with a greater than 99.99 percent probability that he fathered a child with a 14-year-old girl, who had an abortion, according to Fort Pierce police records.

...

The teen girl's mother told police she bought a pregnancy test and confronted her daughter in October after seeing her daughter acting strangely. The mother said her daughter began crying, saying she had had sex with Rhaheed-Muhammad.

The girl said she was 11 when Rhaheed-Muhammad began touching her inappropriately. She said when they had sex in June 2013, Rhaheed-Muhammad "did not force himself on her and that it just happened."

According to Florida statutes, Rhaheed-Muhammad could face up to 15 years in prison and a maximum $10,000 fine.

A U of L spokesperson says that Bobby Petrino is aware of the situation, but had no further comment. Rhaheed-Muhammad, a three-star prospect according to Rivals.com, had been committed to LSU up until last July.
