A former Cincinatti Bengal linebacker, Nate Webster, has been indicted on charges of engaging in sexual conduct with a 15-year-old girl, according to Cincinatti.com.
The girl is said to be the daughter of a former assistant coach at the Bengals.
The incidents happened in 2009, and the young girl said Webster threatened to kill her if she told anyone. Webster was a close friend of the girl’s family.
Webster was indicted June 10 on charges of sexual imposition, sexual battery, and five counts of unlawful sex with a minor with gun specifications. The indictment was sealed until yesterday after his arrest.
Webster could serve up to 36 years in prison if convicted.
