Ray Lewis issued subpoena for Nate Webster’s sex trial

It’s been well over a decade since Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis found himself sitting in the witness chair at a trial.  This time around, his testimony comes from something he isn’t accused of doing.

Former Bengals linebacker Nate Webster faces a trial in Cincinnati for allegedly having sex on multiple occasions with a 15-year-old girl in 2009.  Kimball Perry of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Webster’s lawyer has issued a subpoena to Lewis.

Mary Jill Donovan, who represents Webster, wouldn’t disclose the reason for the presence of Lewis on the witness list.  Since cases of this nature require no proof of intent, it’s unclear how Lewis could help Webster’s case, unless Lewis can create reasonable doubt on the question of whether sex occurred.  On at least four occasions.

Webster, who spent nine years in the NFL and two seasons with the Bengals, declined a plea deal that would have required him to spend four years in jail.  He faces a sentence of up to 30 years.

  1. Wait….was she wearing a DTF button?

    Because if so, call Roethlisberger. Because that’s a valid argument.

  2. Nate Webster

    4 years with the Bucs, where he started his career.
    2 years with the Bengals, where he barely played.
    3 years with the Broncos, where he ended his career.

    Yet somehow, when he gets arrested, he is “former Bengals LB”. What a joke.

    Good grief. Lewis got subpoenaed. If you think that’s some sort of payback for whatever he did in the past you need to learn what a subpoena is.

    “What goes around, comes around, Ray.”

    Because some yahoo prosecutor got a stiffie when he realized he’d snagged a celebrity? Shame there was that persistently troubling detail of a lack of evidence. In fact, they had nothing on Ray. All this mudslinging betrays an invincible faith in the “justice” system in this country. Do you honestly believe that prosecutors are above corruption?

  5. @MikeBrown
    The trial is in Cincy. I think that’s why the Bengals take precedence.

    Because he is being tried in Cincinnati

  7. where is this girls parents?!? sure I understand not sayin anything after the first time (i really dont) but for it to happen 3 more times?!? PARENTS PLEASE TALK TO YOUR KIDS. its not that hard.

  8. The young girl was the daughter of a Bengals coach. Don’t know if PFT is not identifying her by policy but she’s been identified elsewhere, so her father is known.

  9. The headlines in the Cincinnati Enquirer refers to the case as “the Bengal sex case.” I immediately held my breath and clicked the link. Then I saw it was Nate Webster and I just laughed.

  10. Dam Nate I used to watch you work hard during traing camps when you were a Buc. Hope the worst for you now. You can have any girl not some freshman in HS. Hope her dad gets to lay a bit on you

    How is it that this garbage continues to be allowed to remain on comment threads?

    The poster’s screenname alone should be grounds for censoring, and posting inaccurate, defammatory, *irrelevant* nonsense makes that much better a case for deletion.

    Seriously- does this place have any standards?

    Watch- people will slowly drift away b/c of this tripe.

    They did find Oakley’s and Sweeting’s blood in Lewis’s limo and in the lobby rest room of a nearby Holiday Inn, where Lewis’ limo stopped immediately after the stabbings. Of course, they never found Lewis’ clothes from that night…so maybe you’re right, there was a lack of evidence…it was destroyed.

    I’m not saying Lewis actually murdered the two men, but he was certainly a part of the ordeal…he certainly tried covering it up…and he certainly sold his “friends” down the river by copping a deal and testifying for the prosecution while saving his own ass in the process.

    There is no evidence that Ray Lewis is a murderer, but there’s plenty that he is a phony-ass coward.

    Substitute the name “Ray Lewis” with “Ben Roethlisberger”. Read. Make apology, and sincerely, since your very argument proves the righteousness of either and/or both players.

    The truth can bite ya in the ass sometimes, huh?

    Based on your post, you know more about assbiting than truth.

    There was so little evidence and so much reasonable doubt in the Rothlisberger thing…ah, never mind. He plays football so he must be guilty, right?

    ______________________________

    Actually, the fact that her story changed twice and that she admitted that she wasn’t raped was the valid argument.

    Very few of my posts ever make it to the site because I have been critical of Florio in the past…

    But you are right – he and NBC allow the vile slander to continue against Ben…

    But this kind of stuff generates page views among the folks that frequent this site.

    You would think a lawyer would know better…

  17. I was in the hospital when that trial was going on. I watched a good portion of it. If you had too, you would know that given the horrible case the prosecution presented there was no way to convict Ray. i was literally laughing while watching. Made the keystone Cops seem like serious drama actors.

  18. Prosecutors are certain that because Ray Lewis has been in Cincinnati so many times over the years, he MUST have stabbed somebody.

    As of right now, 35 people agree that if it leads to 9 Pittsburgh homers leaving….that’s fine.

  20. Funny how Ray Lewis always finds himself in these compromising positions. What a piece of dung.

  21. melikefootball says: Ray, Ray will be wanting a plea bargain AGAIN!!!

    Dude, go do a Google on the term “subpoena”.

    I *might* suggest that in the future these things are spelled out in the articles, but then I realized that a lot of posters don’t make it past the headline anyway.

  22. They got the wrong linebacker- the case involves sex with a minor. They should subpoena Lawrence Taylor- he’s the expert in that area.

    HAHAHAHAHA

    So true
    Played in a total of 4 games with the Bengals, 63 games with the Bucs, and 32 games with the Broncos. Started with the Bucs and ended with the Broncos with the Bengals years stuck in between…..

    WTF

  24. Nasty Nate has been a dirtbag since he was cheapshotting people at ‘The U’. This is not surprising. Maybe Nate will buy RayRay a new white mink for his testimony.
