Nebraska Running Back Faces ‘Revenge Porn’ Charge Over Sex-Assault Video

Nebraska Cornhuskers running back Maurice Washington III is facing charges after he allegedly sent an intimidating text message to his ex-girlfriend alongside a sex-assault video that she says was taken of her while she was still in high school. The San Jose Mercury News reports the 19-year-old is facing one felony count of child pornography and a count of distributing a private sexual video to cause emotional distress, also known as California’s “revenge porn” law. Washington is accused of sending the woman a message including video of her being sexually assaulted in a minivan when she was 15 with the text: “Remember this hoe.” Detectives say the video was from a sexual assault involving Doe and two male schoolmates—one of whom was later prosecuted—from March 2016. Washington was not in the video, according to his attorney. The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Washington was charged in December but an arrest warrant hasn’t been signed and there are reportedly no plans in place to extradite Washington back to California.
