SMU player accused of sexually assaulting child

Posted by Tom Fornelli

According to the Dallas Morning News, SMU sophomore linebacker Brandon Henderson was arrested in Dallas on Thursday night and is being accused of sexually assaulting a child.  The 20-year old Henderson is currently being held on $50,000 bail at the Dallas County Jail and is awaiting a transfer to the Taylor County Jail.

SMU has declined to comment on the arrest, and June Jones wouldn't comment on whether or not Henderson has been suspended from the team, though considering what he's been arrested for, it's hard to believe he won't receive some kind of punishment.

It's important to note, however, that the age of the child that Henderson allegedly assaulted has not been released, nor has any information on when the alleged incident took place.  So I wouldn't go roasting Henderson over an open fire until we learn more details about what allegedly took place.
