SportsFanLive's Jenna Laine has the exclusive. It seems that Washington, now 24, is a registered sex offender in Texas, and according to Laine's sources, it's because he was convicted in May 2003 of having consensual sex with his 15-year-old sister. It's a sad story. A former coach says Washington comes from a "dysfunctional" home and that he "skipped a phase, so to speak, in his emotional development.

After seeing he's from Texas it's makes a lot more sense, I'm suprised they didn't give him the chair.

Well he'll feel right at home with the Carolina Panthers since "Carolina" in the name also represents the state of South Carolina
Remember that Gastonia is on the NC side, not SC.

I think making somebody into a registered sex offender for having sex with their sister who is 2 year thier junior pretty harsh.
You can't be serious.

I actually agree with SouthNarolina. Don't get me wrong, incest is gross, but having consensual sex as a teenager with a younger sister less than two years younger than him shouldn't lump him with rapists and child molesters imo. The sex offender tag will stick with him for the rest of his life. Hell, the article said that he and his sister are on good terms (hopefully not too good, though) and talk often.
I agree that you shouldn't automatically be lumped in with those types for this, but there is a chance that his sister could be lying about it to protect him, so it should be determined on a case-by-case basis, which hopefully it was...
