Nate Webster’s defense: Sex with girl was after her 16th birthday

natewebster Getty Images

Former Bengals linebacker Nate Webster is admitting in his sexual assault trial that he had sex with a teenage girl. But he claims that the sex didn’t begin until she reached the legal age of consent, 16.

It’s a strange quirk of the law that if Webster and the girl had sex at 11:30 p.m. on the day before her 16th birthday, then he committed a crime that can get him sent to prison for 30 years. If they had sex an hour later, at 12:30 a.m. on the day of her 16th birthday, then he didn’t commit any crime at all.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Webster’s lawyer, Gregory Samms, admitted to jurors that they’ll learn through the evidence in the case that “Something immoral takes place between Nate and [the girl].” But Samms added, “When it happens, she’s 16.”

In recorded conversations, Webster admitted having sex with the girl when she was 15 years old and he was 31. But his lawyers now claim that Webster’s memory was wrong when he said that, and it was actually after she turned 16 that their sexual relationship began.

Webster faces charges of sexual battery, gross sexual imposition (sexual touching) and five counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

    Thank goodness.

    I was gonna say, if she is 15 it’s gross. 16…well nothing wrong there. That makes it ok….I guess?….

    Throw this POS in the slammer for good.

    If its wrong at 15 then it’s wrong at 16. A child was violated at either age.

    Boy am I glad he cleared that up. For a minute I thought he was a scumbag.

    Sounds like just another case of another criminal on the bad news bungals. I think the only thing that would surprise me less would be if he played for the cowboys.

    its a shame this crime happened….first and foremost…..second, this guy played just 3 games as a bengal and many others with other teams…..why is his picture is in a bengals uniform?

  28. ajgreenhof says: Apr 18, 2012 7:46 AM

    I get it. It happened in Cincy but your avoiding the the fact he played the majority of his career for other teams. Which is adding fuel to the never ending fire that half our team is convicts. It’s bashing the Bengals while protecting the Buccaneers and Broncos.

    The Bengals are guilt for bringing in this p.o.s. but the other 2 teams did the exact same thing.

  29. bucs13 says: Apr 18, 2012 7:47 AM

    Quick thoughts-

    This is just about the only defense available to Mr. Webster. Statutory rape is one of the few strict liability crimes. Most crimes require intent to be proved on the part of the perpetrator (often referred to as mens rea).

    Example-
    If you accidentally grab the wrong umbrella from an umbrella stand, thinking it’s you own, then you are not liable for any crime.

    If, OTOH, you grab knowingly take someone else’s umbrella (with the intent to deprive them of their umbrella) it’s a crime.

    With statutory rape, there is no intent requirement.

    Ex-
    If you sleep with a girl that looks 20, that you think is 20, and she tells you she is 20, but she is 15, you committed a crime.

    OTOH, if you sleep with a girl that looks 13, she tells you that she is 13, and you think she is 13, but she is really 17? No crime.

  30. jimmysee says: Apr 18, 2012 7:49 AM

    Shouldn’t a consideration be his intent or understanding at the time.

    You can be convicted of attempted murder for putting slugs into a corpse — if you thought the person was alive at the time of the deed.

  31. arod6466 says: Apr 18, 2012 7:49 AM

    He played for the broncos last. How about former bronco commits crime? He hasnt been a Bengal in 6 years.

    That aside, throw the book at him

  32. muckman207 says: Apr 18, 2012 7:51 AM

    Just who decides when a girl is old enough to have sex anyway?

  36. duanethomas says: Apr 18, 2012 8:02 AM

    Sick. So he culivated her, watched he grow, plied her with drinks and sour….then when she was 16 in had sex with that child? To paraprase the nutjob Ted Nugent if she was my daughter “I’d be dead or in jail”.

  37. packerpride03 says: Apr 18, 2012 8:03 AM

    Lock him up and throw away the key

  38. cleverbob says: Apr 18, 2012 8:04 AM

    Obviously the guy is a scumbag, but if the law is 16 then he committed no crime and you have to let him go.

  39. nycoccet says: Apr 18, 2012 8:05 AM

    If some guy came around my daughter at age 15,16,17 I would take a bat to the side of his forking head. we would hold court at my house nd I would throw out the “she was 16 “bull nd sentence him to be brain dead by way of bat. That little girl should be worrying about college or hanging out with her friends. Her father should be held accoutable as well. PUKES He must not realize how his actions destroy her.

    Unfortunately in the state of Ohio the legal age for consent is …16…so morally its wrong but in the eyes of the law if they can’t prove whether or not she was 15 or 16 at the time, he will walk. And yeah of course he’s an ex Bengal…lol…big surprise there

  42. steeelfann says: Apr 18, 2012 8:15 AM

    Her father (if she has one) should take care of Webster old school.

    This guy is not “sick” he is a pervert plain and simple. In fact, I would characterize him as a sexual predator.

    I have less than zero respect for Webster. Is he so desperate that all he can get is a 15-y/o girl? How freakin’ pathetic. I hope he goes to jail for a long time and is violated by his cellmates.

  45. dexterismyhero says: Apr 18, 2012 8:16 AM

    Drew Bress wants a better explanation. Was it 15 or 16?

    15 is just plain wrong. 16 could be ok if he Tebows after the act…

  48. jfd117 says: Apr 18, 2012 8:23 AM

    Webster only played 3 of his 98 NFL games for the Bengals. He played 63 games for Tampa Bay and 32 games for Denver.

    Perhaps you should be calling him a former Buc or Bronco?

    This girl was surely having sex anyway….so as long as its with some juvenile delinquent with no money, job or car who spends all day smoking pot and playing video games thats a-okay…..but if its with a middle aged, halfway responsible man with a decent life somehow thats morally reprehensible?

  54. lostsok says: Apr 18, 2012 8:44 AM

    It’s odd that 16 is still the age of consent any more. Even in Mississippi (unless related) I can’t image anyplace where that would be considered “okay” by a plurality of people.

  55. speckers says: Apr 18, 2012 8:46 AM

    So does the author just get to choose which team he gets to attach to the story?? He spent a total of 3 games with the Bengals, but decided to leave out the Broncos which was his most recent team for 3 years and then the Buccanears where he played 4 years. Total bs attaching the story to the Bengals.

  56. rickybobbie says: Apr 18, 2012 8:46 AM

    He spent more time with the Bucs and Broncos than he did the Bengals. It is easy to pile on the Bengals because of their checkered past with these type of players. Be fair and state “former NFL player” or “former Bucs, Broncos and Bengals player”.

    Bottom Line – Nate Webster is a POS that should be put away for a long time.

  57. joshh967 says: Apr 18, 2012 8:47 AM

    “Webster only played 3 of his 98 NFL games for the Bengals. He played 63 games for Tampa Bay and 32 games for Denver.

    Completely agree with you. Anyone saying “LOLZ EX-BENGAL…AMMIRIGHT!?” should google “Nate Webster stats” to see just how much time he actually spent here.

  58. conormacleod says: Apr 18, 2012 8:49 AM

    Was it daylight savings time? What time of day was she born? It’ll all come out at trial. The problem is, the jury will be made up of the same people that think 16 years old is a good age for girls to make this kind of decision. If you have daughters you know there is a world of difference mentally between 16 and 18.

    Whats odd is America’s unhealthy fascination with punishing teen sex. This is a very recent cultural development that does not exist to near the shrill, hysterical levels in the rest of the world as it does in the U.S.

  66. biggerballz says: Apr 18, 2012 8:55 AM

    i agree with the other posters, he’s not really a bengal, quit sensationlizing this isn’t TMZ. Otherwise we’ll go back to ESPN uhhhhhggggggggggghhhhhh for our football news.

  67. thermalito says: Apr 18, 2012 9:00 AM

    @conormacleod: I have a daughter and there is most certainly not a world of difference between age 16 and age 18. So operating an automobile is less serious than having sex? If 16 year olds are supposedly too dumb to even make decisions about their own body, why do we allow them to operate machines that can kill people? The reason is twofold:

    1. middle aged, fat unattractive American females hate the thought of men their age having fun with younger, better looking women.
    2. men who get zero attention from young girls hate the thought of men who do.

    Consider both those demographics makeup our nation’s laws, it comes as no surprise that American’s draconian sex laws are more severe than the Islamic world.

  68. joshh967 says: Apr 18, 2012 9:04 AM

    ____________________________________

    100% agree.

    I usually don’t like the Feds treading on States Rights,but I’l make an exception for this issue. The AOC should be 18 in all 50 states.

    This is something to think about though. We’ve always heard the expression “You cannot legislate morality” This case is a perfect example of why. Morals constantly change. What’s considered ok today,may have been considered Immoral in earlier eras. This case against webster,is the total opposite.

    3-5 generations ago (depending on ones age) it was not uncommon to see a 35+ year old man marry a 16 year old girl. Farmers basically had to create their own work force by having a lot of children. It was also common for those farmers wives to die during childbirth. It was also common to see women have as many dead children as live ones. We simply didn’t have the medical knowledge then as we do now. Children and women perished due to infection or diseases that can easily be cured now. Farmers often had several wives during their lifespan. It wasn’t due to divorce,but due to death of former wives. So much for the good old days eh?

    That said,what Webster did was highly Immoral in my opinion,and I hope they throw the book at him. I am the father of a teen age daughter and if someone like Webster hits on her, it will never reach trial. The trial would be mine and I’d claim justifiable homicide.

  72. supergruby says: Apr 18, 2012 9:16 AM

    Why do Bengals fans only care about their name in the story and not about the little girl this clown had sex with? You’re missing the point! Idiots!

  73. bigbluewreckincrew says: Apr 18, 2012 9:30 AM

    Reading some of the comments here make me realize why this country is in the toilet. Whether she was 15 or 16 & consensual or not is irrelevant. She’s a kid and he’s an adult. Because he’s an athlete most rules haven’t applied to him especially in college so why would anyone expect him to not think he’d get away with this too or do the right thing? C’mon – most of you probably don’t have kids if you’re taking this pukes side in this matter. I got a friend named mossberg that he should be introduced to.

  74. ajgreenhof says: Apr 18, 2012 9:30 AM

    @thermalito

    Are you delusional? Cause you just made up most of what you in your giant baseless assumption.

    How do you know the girl was having sex and with who? Oh yeah you don’t. (Unless you need to be investigated.) Also not all 15 year olds smoke pot and play video games all day. Personally id rather have my daughter doing it with a 15 year old…You wanna know why? CAUSE SHE’S 15 !

    I’m pretty sure responsible adults don’t have sex with minors either FYI. Your standards for being responsible are horrifyingly low.

  75. Stiller43 says: Apr 18, 2012 9:37 AM

    Giving a 16 yr old a million to corroborate his story should clear all this up.

  77. siknutty says: Apr 18, 2012 9:43 AM

    @Thermalito

    It’s called, a 31 year old professional football player should be able to get any woman he wants. The fact that had sex with a 15/16 year old is pathetic. Dont you think webster’s prestige and money had something to do with the girl sleeping with him?

  78. ragingjetfan says: Apr 18, 2012 9:53 AM

    Wow seriously, guys? I’m not saying what Nate Webster was wrong but didn’t I read an article where a Bengals cheerleader was arrested and accused of having sex with teenager right here PFT? Oh and didn’t I read a bunch of comments that said “Lucky kid!” and “Where were these teachers when I was in high school?” and EVERYONE giving those comments thumbs up?

    So let me get this straight:

    Older woman has sex with teenager = awesome!

    Older man has sex with teenager = Horrible! Let’s hang him!

    Come on fellas! You can’t have it both ways! America: where people like to play both sides of the field.

    The idea that a 15 year old girl in this society and this day and age is so immature and incapable of making her own decisions about who to have sex with and when that we need some draconian, outdated law to protect them from themselves is absurd and stupid.

    The question of whether Mr. Webster, at 31, should be mining the types of places underage girls hang out for his action is a separate question about his character.

    But the idea he could not only wind up in jail for it, and just as bad have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life is just ridiculous.

  82. therealbrettfavre says: Apr 18, 2012 10:03 AM

    The guy barely played in Cincy the 2 years he was there. No mention of his time with TB and Denver. The Bengals are on the rise, guess some can’t handle it. Who Dey!!

  83. whatnojets says: Apr 18, 2012 10:12 AM

    Hmmm……Sounds Guilty to me:

    Nathaniel “Nate” Webster Jr., a former Cincinnati Bengals linebacker, often went to cookouts and socialized with friends at his Symmes Township home, so when he needed a baby sitter, he asked the 15-year-old daughter of one of those friends.

    That, though, may have been part of an excuse to begin a sexual relationship with the teen that went undiscovered for two years – because, a Thursday indictment alleged, Webster used guns to intimidate the girl into keeping quiet about their relationship. Sometimes when they had sex in Webster’s car, the girl told police, Webster also had a gun in clear sight.

    “It’s a disgusting thing to live under the threat of this,” Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said Thursday. “This conduct occurred dozens of times. … In his car, his home, a park nearby

    By the way, Webster has seven children from four women…..This dude has severe “issues”

    These statutory rape stories always baffle me. Do we all really remember what we were doing at 15 or 16? Granted, it’s not what I’d want my kids doing, but it’s dishonest to not acknowledge when you did some shady crap as a kid.

    bucs13 is right about the role of intent in statutory rape cases and I happen to think that is ridiculously unfair. I can tell you that I’ve known girls as young as 13 who can pass for 25. Unless you intend on carding everyone you have a relationship with (and since I knew people in college without drivers licenses) that might be a little difficult.

    Now while I have questions about this guy’s morality (16, what on earth do you talk about? There is no talking? How is the sex any good with someone who knows pretty much nothing?), the legal place he’s in is completely unfair.

    Grown man has consensual sex with a slightly underage girl? “Ewww f-ing pervert lock him away for life. Savages like this should not be allowed in society”

    Female teacher has sex with a student of hers? “Nice. Where were these teachers when I was in school? That kid is so lucky.”

    Sick. So he culivated her, watched he grow, plied her with drinks and sour….then when she was 16 in had sex with that child? To paraprase the nutjob Ted Nugent if she was my daughter “I’d be dead or in jail”.

    ===================================The Nug had a similar situation that Nate Webster got himself into except the girl the Nug was interested in was 17 at the time.

    This would not be my daughter. If, somehow, this were my kid, I would have already gutted Webster and assumed my new life as Mysterious Stranger in a Logging Camp. Having said that, those who point out the iniquity of enforcement of these laws based on gender make an excellent point.

    Sorry Bengal fans, unfortunately this POS, had sex with a former bengals assistant coach’s daughter! My guess why this article has been related towards your team. That and maybe all the turds that have come and gone through your team!!

    “Hello Nate Webster, I’m Chris Hansen and I’m with dateline NBC and were doing a story on adult predators who lure underage children into sex”

    Nate Webster ” I was just in the neighborhood and stopped in. She told me she was 18″

    Chris Hansen “no, no she didnt”

    Prosecute this POS and make him PAY!

    In recorded conversations, Webster admitted having sex with the girl when she was 15 years old and he was 31. But his lawyers now claim that Webster’s memory was wrong when he said that, and it was actually after she turned 16 that their sexual relationship began.
    ==============================
    Great! Now he has to have sex with a different 15 year old to be able to cross that age off his list. He was already scouting for his 14 year old!

  101. neonblack510 says: Apr 18, 2012 1:36 PM

    Surprise surprise he plays for the Bengals.

  102. khuxford says: Apr 18, 2012 1:38 PM

    Definitely a scumbag, but…

    It’s a quirk? That someone reaching the age of consent has now obtained the legal right to provide consent? That’s not a quirk. If you want to say it is a failing of the law that we use calendar age instead of some other determination for actual maturity, that’s a shortcoming, not a quirk.

    Don’t really care what he did. I choose not to sleep with teenagers but it’s because they are crazy, not because they aren’t attractive. Just Sayin

  104. xx4zu1 says: Apr 18, 2012 3:27 PM

    Regardless of 15-16 argument there is something inherently wrong with a man having sex with a kid especially if he was old enough to be her father. There are many circumstances and arguments to be made about this situation but if he was fully aware of her age that man needs counseling and so does the girl.

  105. larryboodry says: Apr 18, 2012 3:38 PM

    thermalito, first you say:

    “America’s draconian teen sex laws are worse than the Islamic world.”

    Our laws are not draconian, first of all, and haven’t you heard? Muslims marry child brides at least as young as ten, so your statement doesn’t make sense.

    Then you say:

    “This girl was surely having sex anyway….so as long as its with some juvenile delinquent with no money, job or car who spends all day smoking pot and playing video games thats a-okay…..but if its with a middle aged, halfway responsible man with a decent life somehow thats morally
    reprehensible?”

    Who are you to say she was ‘surely having sex anyway?’ And yeah, it is worse (and VERY morally eprehensible) for a 31-year-old man to have sex with a teen, then if two teens are having consensual sex with each other.

    And finally, ’cause your stupidity knows no bounds, you say:

    “Whats odd is America’s unhealthy fascination with punishing teen sex. This is a very recent cultural development that does not exist to near the shrill, hysterical levels in the rest of the world as it does in the U.S.”

    No, what’s odd is YOUR unhealthy defense of perverts who prey on teenage girls…Also, we do not have a ‘shrill & hysterical’ attitude towards teen sex…Just a very rational desire to protect our children from adults who would molest them.

    So dude, all I can say is, you scare me…If I had a teenage daughter and you ever came near her, I’d gladly stand trial for shooting you dead.

    As long as the Bengals keep getting all these criminal elements on thier team, people are going to continue mocking, making fun of, hating on the Bengals. Get over it, Bengals fans. Tell your team to clean it up.

    When the Ben-Gals cheerleader was arrested for having sex with a 16-year-old boy, these threads were overrun with men outraged that anyone would consider it abuse for an attractive, athletic woman to have sex with a teenage boy.

    So … why do you guys suddenly have a problem when the gender roles are reversed?

    A kid is a kid. Grownups needs to prowl other grownups and leave the kids alone.

    thermalito says:

    1. middle aged, fat unattractive American females hate the thought of men their age having fun with younger, better looking women.
    2. men who get zero attention from young girls hate the thought of men who do.
    Consider both those demographics makeup our nation’s laws, it comes as no surprise that American’s draconian sex laws are more severe than the Islamic world.

    Are you freaking kidding? Have you tuned in to any recent sessions of Congress? Were you around for the debate over whether women’s prescriptive birth control should be covered by insurance–the way men’s Viagra is???? Did you see any women in those debates???? No. All you saw, if you had half a brain and actually watched five minutes of news, was old men. The male governor of Wisconsin has just overturned state laws mandating equal pay for equal work!! Women don’t make the laws in this country. Try worrying less about getting laid and more about what’s really happening in your country, Bozo! :roll:

    Yes, it’s about this football player, that cheerleader, an assistant football coach (meaning Sandusky) who selfishly cared more about their sexual expression and wayward desires than the welfare of children. But wake up America; when the collective lowered the moral standards of what sex should mean and express – love between a man and women committed for a lifetime (marriage), you opened floodgates you can’t close. Why are you all so alarmed and surprised? Of course, our children are endangered in this hedonistically sexual society from predators and then, their (young people) own misshapen morals. You can’t legislate morality because on the one hand you want to do your thing; which means these kind of people will want the freedom to do their thing their way. So dial it down. Pull it back. This is where all this so called “sexual freedom” leads. U God knows you can’t curb perversity, so He strictly prohibits our sexually expression to where there is safety, consistency and accountability. If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.

    The fact that this dude is a pedophile (technically an ephebophile) has nothing to do with sex before marriage. Pedophilia and sex out of wedlock were rampant throughout western history, if they were not prostitution would not have such a rich tradition in the western world. Get down off the soapbox and look at the reality of the world we live in.

    former Bengals LB Webster? Is there a reason you begin with that?

    2 years with Cincy… in the middle of his career. 4 with TB to start his career (drafted), 3 with Denver to end it.

    Give me a break, PFT. Seriously.

    by the way the last time i checked,even teenagers are capable of saying no.parents should know this,your kids tell you no all the time.the word no is engrained in teen dna,but yet they always say yes to all thew things that get everyone else in trouble while they get away clean.ridiculous.
