“He’s a grown man and should know better,” said a mother, speaking out for her daughter. Police said just months ago, in January, the 15-year-old and pro football player Anthony Mix had consensual sex. Investigators said the incident started by text messaging.
“One thing led to another and they decided to meet up. We believe he was aware of the age of the girl. She snuck out of her house, they met, they had sex in the vehicle while it was parked on the street,” said Sgt. Lester Banfield with Bay Minette Police.
Police said the two did have sex a second time and the girl was brought home around 3:00 a.m. Later that morning the girl’s mother found out and a police report was filed.
“Through the investigation we decided we had enough evidence to take the case to the grand jury. We presented the case and they came back with the indictment for contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” Banfield said.
