Detectives in Indiana have released more information regarding the arrest of Kiante Enis, the Indiana football player arrested Thursday for child molesting.
According to the Star Press, Enis said he learned the girl’s age after they had sex for the first time but later had sex with the girl two more times.
The Star Press also reported that Enis was formally charged in Randolph County on Friday with two counts of child molesting, a Level 3 felony which carries up to a 16-year prison sentence.
Here’s more from the Star Press’s report:
The teen at first maintained she and Enis were “just friends and hung out together on occasion.”
After a detective told the girl that authorities believed “there was more going on than what she was telling them,” the report said, the girl became “very quiet and placed her head in her hands.”
She then acknowledged she and Enis had sex twice in her family’s home last March.
“She said that he did not force her to have sex,” the detective wrote.
The girl also said that Enis had sent her a cellphone photo of his genitals, and “told her several times not to tell anyone that the two of them had sex.”
Enis was interviewed on Thursday, and, at first, told deputies he assumed he would be asked “about a little girl that was bugging him,” the affidavit said.
Enis starred at running back for Winchester Community High School, and was a finalist for the IndyStar Mr. Football Award in 2016. He originally committed to Michigan before signing with the Hoosiers.
