Sharieff Rhaheed-Muhammad a Florida High School prospect that’s committed to play at Louisville next year has been arrested and charged with a felony count of lewd lascivious behavior after he allegedly got his 14 year old cousin pregnant. From CBS 12:
Fort Pierce police began investigating the case on October after the teen girl’s mother gave her a pregnancy test that came up positive, and she admitted to having sex with her older cousin.
Investigators determined the two had sex in late June when the girl was visiting family at Sharieff Inuka Rhaheed-Muhammad’s home in Fort Pierce.
The girl told police that Rhaheed-Muhammad didn’t force himself on her and that the sex “just happened.” He tried again later and she turned him away, according to a police report.
The pregnancy was aborted in November, and genetic testing of the remains showed on Feb. 11 a nearly 100 percent chance that Rhaheed-Muhammad, 17, was the father. After Rhaheed and his mother refused to provide a DNA sample, police served a search warrant at the high school in November and took a swab of his DNA, according to the report.
Louisville Head Coach Bobby Petrino said in a statement that he is “aware of the situation.”
