*It’s a bad news day for the son of ex-NFLer Ray Lewis. That’s because a grand jury in South Carolina has indicted Ray Anthony Lewis III, a former Coastal Carolina University defensive on a charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
According to reports, the indictment returned this week alleges the younger Lewis engaged in sexual battery of an 18-year-old female who was incapacitated due to the use of drugs or alcohol. The incident occurred last Jan. 23, according to the indictment.
A resident of Apopka, Florida, Lewis III turned himself in at the time an arrest warrant was issued and released on $10,000 bond.
The indictment states that Lewis, 20, sexually assaulted the alleged victim “when the defendant knew or had reason to know that the victim was mentally defective, mentally incapacitated or physically helpless.”
Lewis is no longer on the football team or registered as a student at Coastal Carolina University, according to myhorrynews.com.
His attorney, Ed Garland, had released a statement in April stating that his client “is not guilty because no crime was committed” and that the alleged victim and another woman present “were fully conscious of what they were doing and knowingly consented.”
“The sex with the accuser was entirely consensual,” Garland added. “We are confident that a thorough evaluation of the facts will show that there was no crime committed.”
