Former Michigan Wolverines offensive lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman was dismissed from the program back on September 10 for what coach Jim Harbaugh called “conduct unacceptable of a Michigan student-athlete,” and now we know why.
Per a report from John Counts of MLive.com, Tuley-Tillman has been charged with three felonies stemming from an incident in early September.
Allegedly, Tuley-Tillman filmed a sex act with a young woman without her knowledge. He has been charged with two counts of “capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person” and one of “using a computer to commit a crime.”
Counts’ report discussed the charges as follows:
“Capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person is punishable by up to two years in prison, a fine of no more than $2,000, or both. Using a computer to commit a crime, in this case, would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a fine of no more than $5,000, or both.
“The incident occurred in the 300 block of Catherine Street Sept. 4. Tuley-Tillman is accused of filming a portion of a sexual encounter with a woman without her knowledge and then transmitting it to his personal device without her permission, according to Ann Arbor police.”
A former four-star recruit from Peoria, Illinois, this cannot end well for Tuley-Tillman if true.
The NCAA is taking a strong stance towards crimes against women, especially those of a sexual nature. Granted, it isn’t being alleged that Tuley-Tillman raped or sexually assaulted the young lady involved, but filming someone during sex without their consent can easily be considered just as bad. What is believed to be a private moment is suddenly public, and the ramifications or consequences that come as a result are unpredictable.
Campus Sports will update the case against Tuley-Tillman when new information becomes available.
