Now this is just disgusting. DeShawn Stevenson of the Utah Jazz has been charged with raping a 14-year-old girl!

Stevenson accused of sex with 14-year-old girl

FRESNO, Calif. -- Utah Jazz rookie DeShawn Stevenson has been charged with raping a 14-year-old girl, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

Stevenson, a 6-foot-5 guard who went from high school directly to the NBA last year, was charged last week in Fresno Superior Court, chief deputy district attorney Liz Mitchell said.

The 20-year-old Stevenson, a Fresno native who went to Washington Union H.S. in nearby Easton, faces up to three years in state prison if convicted. His whereabouts Tuesday were not immediately known.

Stevenson is accused of having sex with the girl during a visit to Fresno in the past six weeks, Mitchell said. She didn't have any other details.

A warrant was issued Monday for Stevenson's arrest, the Fresno County Sheriff's Department said.

The Jazz would not comment and Stevenson's lawyer, Richard Berman, did not immediately return a message from The Associated Press requesting comment.

"I didn't even know he played basketball," Mitchell said. "I have no idea what he was doing in Fresno."

This is the second time Stevenson has run into legal troubles since he was drafted in the first round by Utah last year.

On the night he was drafted, Stevenson was involved in a brawl at a high school all-star basketball game in neighboring Clovis.

Stevenson, who did not play in the game, said he was jumped by five men June 28 after signing autographs. He pleaded innocent to charges of fighting in a public place.

Crap...forget the Jazz...the world is falling apart. This is awful...but the sad thing is that it happens all the time so we're pretty numb to it.

I saw that, that's one of the most disturbing things in the world. The worst part about this is, if this was a regular 20 year old guy, I'd put my life on it that nothing would probably have happened from it. It's sick!

He's probably going to get off the rape charge... maybe plead it down to a misdemeanor and get probabation. The good news is that the girl will probably receive many millions of dollars in a civil suit. NBA atheletes are pretty good targets if you want to get a big settlement.

I phrased that wrong Murph, I meant to say it would be swept under the rug and no one would care about the fact that there is a 20 year old man having sex with a 14 year old girl. Because it is an athlete, everyone has an opinion on it.

Regardless, that's just nasty!

Athletes have a different punishment. They rarely get punished by the judicial system, but they get crucified by the public since every aspect of the event is published.

I think the mom is in it for the money. He new the girl for 5 years and told her mom over the phone that they were having sex.

I wouldn't put it past someone to whore out their daughter to get a big payoff. We live in a sick world.
