Louisville Recruit Charged with Felony For Impregnating 14-Year-Old Cousin


Sharieff Rhaheed-Muhammad, a Louisville football recruit from Fort Pierce, Fla., was arrested on a felony charge of “lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor” after impregnating his 14-year-old cousin.

CBS12 provides more details on the situation.

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.

Rhaheed-Muhammad is a three-star linebacker recruit. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said in a statement the school was “aware of the situation.”
