BET is reporting that Justin Crawford has been arrested and charged for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old female family member.
According to the media house, the former college football star and Atlanta Falcons was caught by his wife, Chakeya Crawford, on the morning of Saturday, as he stood exposed over the child in the living room, his penis fully erect. Crawford reportedly fled to the kitchen to cover up, and when questioned by his wife, he denied any wrongdoing.
The stunned woman returned to bed, still mulling over the shocking incident, but later took the child to her mother for proper questioning. It was then that the child revealed that she was asleep in the living room when Crawford came in and had her perform oral sex on him before they had intercourse.
The child was taken in for a medical exam that included compiling a “sex assault kit” to collect any DNA evidence, Detective Mark Scruggs testified in court. Crawford at first denied the accusation but later admitted to the detective that he penetrated the child. He further claimed the penetration was the girl’s idea.
Crawford’s case was forwarded to the Muscogee Superior Court, and he was held without bond. Now, he is facing felony charges of incest, sodomy and enticing a child for indecent purpose.
The over-decorated player signed with the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent but was cut by the team during the preseason, according to the team’s website.
We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
