Wide receiver Anthony Mix had been out of the NFL for a year, until he signed with the Buccaneers in January. So he did what any one of us would do: He allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old girl.
The 26-year-old Mix has been indicted in Alabama after reenacting a cross between “Romeo & Juliet”, “Rapunzel”, and “Barely Legal Teens 22″. He allegedly came to the girls house, waiting outside while she snuck out, and had sex in his car parked outside. When it happened a second time, the girl’s mother called police. You can’t be doing that.
Today Mix turned himself in to face an indictment on a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, though police had been seeking charges of second degree rape and sodomy. He said through his attorney that the charges are bogus.
Police say the relationship started via text messaging, or “sexting” as Oprah would like to inform you.
“One thing led to another and they decided to meet up. We believe he was aware of the age of the girl. She snuck out of her house, they met, they had sex in the vehicle while it was parked on the street,” said Sgt. Lester Banfield with Bay Minette Police.
The mother of the victim said her daughter hasn’t been the same since. “She’s going through alot, she doesn’t want to face it,” said her mother.
She said she wanted her voice to be heard. “I don’t like the idea of what he did, it’s not fair for kids to have to go through stuff like this. Plus he has people looking up to him. It’s just not fair,” said the victim’s mother.
Nix has played parts of three seasons with the Giants and Redskins, and is, for the moment, still in good standing with the Buccaneers. But how long that’ll last is anyone’s guess. After all, this isn’t Marcus Dixon we’re talking about here.
