Former NFL linebacker Nate Webster has been convicted on four counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. He was acquitted for “gross sexual imposition, sexual battery and one count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.”
Webster was charged with having sex with a 15-year-old girl who was babysitting for him while he was a member of the Cincinnati Bengals. His defense was the encounters did not begin until she had reached the Ohio age of consent, 16.
The counts carry a potential prison term of up to 20 years. He rejected a four-year plea deal that would have left him on the sex offender registry.
