Ray Anthony Lewis III, son of former Ravens linebacker and current ESPN analyst Ray Lewis, was charged on one count of criminal sexual misconduct Friday morning in Conway, South Carolina,.
Lewis, 20, a Coastal Carolina football player, turned himself in Friday morning and was processed and released on a $10,000 bond.
According to Conway police, the alleged incident took place Jan. 23 at an apartment near the campus. The warrant alleges that Lewis engaged in sexual battery of an 18-year-old woman while she was mentally incapacitated and/or physically helpless from the use of drugs and/or alcohol.
Friday night, attorney Edward Garland issued a statement on behalf of Lewis that said in part, "Ray Lewis III states that he is not guilty of any criminal conduct. He is not guilty because no crime was committed. The sex with the accuser was entirely consensual."
The charge is a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than 10 years.
Lewis, of Apopka, Florida, transferred from Miami to Coastal Carolina, an FCS power, in 2015. He played 12 games last season as a cornerback and made 14 solo tackles.
Lewis never played at Miami, his father's alma mater. He was suspended when the Hurricanes played a 2013 bowl game during his redshirt season.
