According to a report by TMZ, former West Virginia running back Justin Crawford (2016-17) will face 12 years in prison on charges for incest and child molestation sodomy in which he recently  pleaded guilty to in court.

Crawford was arrested last October in Columbus, Georgia and it is believe that the child involved was only 12 years old at the time. In last year’s report of the arrest, TMZ stated that he admitted to having sexual intercourse and oral sex with the young child, but claimed it was her idea to do so.

The former West Virginia running back had back to back 1,000 yard seasons and signed with the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent, but did not make the roster. He also had a short stint with the Atlanta Legends of the AAF.
