The article from ESPN reports on the arrest of Jackson Mahomes, the younger brother of NFL star Patrick Mahomes, on charges of aggravated sexual battery. Jackson Mahomes, who has gained a following on social media for his dance videos, was taken into custody in February 2021 in Bryan County, Oklahoma.
According to court documents, Mahomes is accused of “intentionally touching another person’s intimate parts…without consent” at a bar in the town of Denison, Texas. The victim in the case is a 15-year-old girl. Mahomes was released on a $10,000 bond and is due to appear in court in July.
This is a serious allegation that could potentially ruin the life of the victim, as well as that of Mahomes and his family. It is important to remember that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, but if Mahomes is found guilty, he should face the full consequences of his actions.
Sexual assault is a heinous crime that can cause serious trauma and emotional distress for the victim. It is unacceptable and must be punished to the fullest extent of the law. We must all work to create a society where sexual assault is not tolerated and where victims are treated with respect and dignity.
