CONWAY, S.C. (AP) — A grand jury in South Carolina has indicted former Coastal Carolina University defensive back Ray Anthony Lewis III, son of former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis, on a charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
News outlets report the indictment returned this week alleges the younger Lewis engaged in sexual battery of an 18-year-old female who was incapacitated due to the use of drugs or alcohol. The indictment says the charge stemmed from an incident last Jan. 23.
Lewis, of Apopka, Florida, turned himself in at the time an arrest warrant was issued and released on $10,000 bond.
His attorneys released a statement at the time saying Lewis is not guilty because there was no crime. They said the sex with the woman was consensual and that she was fully conscious.
