California High School Football Players Charged With Sex Assault Of Underaged Girls
Two southern California high school football stars — including one nicknamed “Sweet Feet” by Snoop Dogg — have been charged in a disturbing sex assault investigation involving six underage girls.
The suspects, both 17-year-old students at Vista Murrieta High School, about 60 miles southeast of Los Angeles, were arrested Thursday and made first appearances in Riverside County juvenile court Tuesday.
Running back Kishawn Holmes was charged with sex assaulting two different girls through the use of force or fear and performing lewd acts on a third victim under the age of 14, prosecutors said.
Holmes also was charged with trying to dissuade one of his alleged rape victims from speaking to authorities and three counts of false imprisonment involving three other girls, prosecutors said.
As for Holmes co-defendant…
Second teen suspect Byron Holt Jr. was also charged with sex-related crimes in connection with the investigation, but the details of his case remain sealed, Hall said.
Holt’s mom and lawyer attended his hearing and later told the media he faces felony charges of lewd acts on a minor under 14.
The lawyer characterized the sexual interaction as consensual, according to KCAL 9.
Holt is expected to be released to his parents’ custody pending his next court appearance.
“I just want his name cleared,” his mother, Tasha Penniman, told KCAL. “Byron is a good kid, a great kid. …He’s very humble.”
It’s always sad when a kid does something terrible and the parents just can’t seem to fathom how their “baby boy” could have committed a heinous crime.
