News broke Thursday morning that former Bengals, Buccaneers and Broncos (the letter "B" anyone?) will be indicted on multiple sex-related charges involving a minor. According to prosecutors, Webster engaged in a sexual relationship with a 15-year old girl in 2009 and threatened to kill her and her family if they ever went public about it. Accusations are serious enough that Webster's bond is set at $1 million.

Since he only played four games with the Cincinnati Bengals, what's the big deal for us, right? Why do we call him a former Bengals player? Well. He was. For two injury-plagued seasons. But that's not even the reason we're commenting on it again.

According to the Associated Press, the minor was the "teenage daughter of a former Bengals assistant coach." We're not even going to begin assuming or speculating on which coach that might be.

What we do know is that for all of the benefit of the doubt we've promoted for Adam Jones (defending his wife) and Cedric Benson (defending himself), we can't find a single cell in our body that would present anything close to a cautionary tale of innocent before found guilty. Webster is so screwed and if he's found guilty, he could face nearly 40 years in prison.
