Kiante Enis was dismissed from the Indiana football team after he was charged two molestation charges in September. Each sentence carried a maximum jail sentence of nine years.
On Wednesday, the Star Press reported that the former running back had received his sentence.
Enis figures to spend about eight more months behind bars, as well as two years of probation following his release. The court dropped the two molestation charges, but received a conviction on a charge of child solicitation.The 19-year old claims that he wasn’t aware of the victims age before their first encounter, but had sex with her two more times after he found out she was only 13.
Enis had a number of family members and friends in the court while his sentence was being handed down.
Among them were his girlfriend and their child who was born in January of 2017.
“It’s really embarrassing,” Enis told the judge of the events leading to his conviction. “I feel like I let my family down and my supporters down.”
Enis says he still wants to go to college. That will be put on hold while he serves his time. For all intents and purposes, though, his football career is over.
