Baltimore Ravens star and outspoken anti-Kaepernick commentator Ray Lewis will now have a very hard place to talk himself out of when it comes to morality after the terrible news has come out that his son Ray Lewis III has been charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. His son does maintain his innocence.
Two victims have told authorities that the star’s son, who is also a sophomore cornerback for the Coastal Carolina University football team, sexually assaulted them. The incident is said to have taken place on Saturday 23rd January at an apartment not far from campus.
The arrest warrant alleges that Lewis did engage in sexual battery with an 18-year-old female with the knowledge that the victim was incapacitated and/or physically helpless from the use of drugs and/or alcohol.
Lewis turned himself in to police on April 29 and was charged with criminal sexual conduct, third degree.
Case Brittain, of the Brittain Law Firm, said he is representing Lewis in the case, along with fellow attorneys Tommy Brittain and Ed Garland, who is out of Atlanta.
“Ray Lewis III is innocent of all charged and we expect him to be fully vindicated at the end of this matter,” Case Brittain said.
Garland was one of the attorneys who successfully represented the senior Ray Lewis in the former Ravens star’s 2001 murder trial.
The case is still active, and investigators are seeking additional witnesses and leads. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact Conway Police at 843-248-1790.
