Former Miami (FL) linebacker Nate Webster was sentenced to 12 years in prison on Wednesday on four counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, according to Cincinnati.com.
The report said that Webster admitted to having sex with a girl in the fall of 2009, saying as much in a taped statement to police. According to Cincinnati.com, Webster then said he “remembered incorrectly” – claiming that he started having sex with the girl in 2010, when she reportedly was 16-years old, which is Ohio’s age of consent.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reported last summer that Webster, now 34, allegedly hired a then-15-year-old babysitter, whom he allegedly intimidated into a sexual relationship by brandishing guns.
Citing prosecutors, the report said that Webster threatened to kill the girl if she told anyone about their relationship. Cincinnati.com’s most-recent report did not mention the previously reported threats.
After leaving Miami, Webster played for the Tampa Bay Bucs, Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos from 2000-08. He won a Super Bowl ring with the Bucs after the 2002 season. Nate Webster profile
