Ray Lewis will not be called to testify in defense of Nate Webster, the former NFL linebacker charged with sex and intimidation crimes in Ohio.
The Cincinnati Enquirer posted an update today saying the Ravens' Pro Bowl linebacker would not be asked to take the stand. It was never clear why Lewis had be subpoenaed. He and Webster both played at Miami, but not at the same time. A Ravens spokesman said he knew nothing about Lewis' involvement.
Webster, who is charged with having sex with a 15-year-old (age of consent is 16 in Ohio) and then using guns to coerce her into keeping the incidents secret, could face more than 30 years in jail if convicted. His defense team aggressively questioned the character of the alleged victim during the trial this week.
