SMU player arrested for child assault

SMU player accused of sexually assaulting child
Posted on: October 1, 2010 2:02 by Tom Fornelli

According to the Dallas Morning News, SMU sophomore linebacker Brandon Henderson was arrested in Dallas on Thursday night and is being accused of sexually assaulting a child. The 20-year old Henderson is currently being held on $50,000 bail at the Dallas County Jail and is awaiting a transfer to the Taylor County Jail.

SMU has declined to comment on the arrest, and June Jones wouldn't comment on whether or not Henderson has been suspended from the team, though considering what he's been arrested for, it's hard to believe he won't receive some kind of punishment.

It's important to note, however, that the age of the child that Henderson allegedly assaulted has not been released, nor has any information on when the alleged incident took place. So I wouldn't go roasting Henderson over an open fire until we learn more details about what allegedly took place.

Even if there was NO child, it's still "sexual assault", right?

Not necessarily true. A 16 year old cannot legally consent to having sex with a person more than 3 years older in Texas. It is possible he had consensual sex with a 16 year old (or younger) and it would only be a crime because of the age.

I am pretty sure statutory rape is no longer in the Penal Code, it is sexual assault of a child. This very well may be a 20 year old who had consensual sex with a 16 year old.

I get it. I was thinking more of him committing a sexual assault, then it turning out to be a minor, if that makes sense.

I really hate this excuse. It makes the child look like the problem, not the adult who should be responsible for his/her own actions.

So what is a 20 year suppose to do? Ask for a DL or something? If you are 20 you can't go to bars where most of the time everyone there is 21 and up. If he knew she was 16 then he should be thrown in jail but like I said before what is he suppose to do to find out?

It is the responsibility of the adult to make sure they are having sex with a person who can consent. How old are you?

I am 45 and remember also. I just never came close to jailbait, so I wonder about the guys who go there and are surprised when they get in trouble,

"It was the child's fault" just doesn't do it for me.
