Robert Watson, the lawyer for Sharieff Rhaheed-Muhammad who is the Louisville recruit who was arrested and charged with a felony count of lewd lascivious behavior after he got his 14 year old cousin pregnant released a statement basically saying that this isn’t out of the ordinary:
“What happened, according to the allegations, was experimental activity between two teenagers,” Watson said. “One child would have been slightly over 16 [at the time of the incident], the other approximately 14 … not something that would be all that extraordinary in human behavior.”
I think Mr Watson may end up regretting that poor choice of words. Even if this were a 16 and 14 year old that wasn’t related, it still wouldn’t quite be ‘normal.’ I hope that the young man gets better counsel going forward.
Bobby Petrino still has no comment.
