Prosecutors: More Underage Sex Charges Possible Against Ex-Football Player
LIBERTY, Mo. — A former William Jewell College football player already charged with attempted deviant sexual assault could face more charges involving inappropriate contact with underage girls, prosecutors said on Thursday.
Blake Brown, 20, was kicked off the college’s football team following his arrest on Monday in connection to an alleged attempted sexual assault on a 14-year-old girl back in February.
But at least one metro mom says that she filed a police report against Brown on Monday for allegedly trying to convince her 13-year-old daughter to meet him for sex before she knew of the charges filed over the alleged February incident.
According to the mother, who asked not to be identified, says that Brown was persistent with her daughter – and was Facebook friends with at least 33 of her daughters friends, all also just 13 years of age.
“He was asking her for pictures, he was asking her if she wanted pictures of him,” said the mother. “This guy tried everything he could to meet up with her.”
In a Facebook conversation between the two, Brown asked the girl for her phone number. She told him that he was too old for her, that she was only 13. Brown then lied, telling the girl that he was 18, and that her age didn’t matter because the two could be friends with benefits – a euphimism for casual, non-commital sex.
“This guy could have really hurt her,” said the mother, who then called other mothers of girls whose teenage daughters were friends with Brown on Facebook.
Another concerned mother told FOX 4 that Brown messaged her daughter on Facebook as well.
“He doesnt fit the typical person I think everybody has in their mind of someone who would prey on children would look like,” said the mother, who also asked FOX 4 to not reveal her identity.
One of the mothers told FOX 4 that the FBI confiscated her 13-year-old daughter’s cell phone after the girl told police that Brown texted her and asked to meet up for sex.
Both the Liberty and Pleasant Valley Police departments are investigating the allegations against Brown, and the Clay County Prosecutor says that more charges are possible.
