Calvin Murphy Indicted on Molestation

HOUSTON - NBA Hall of Famer Calvin Murphy was indicted Thursday on six counts of sexually abusing five of his daughters more than 10 years ago.



The former Houston Rockets (news) star, who is on leave from his job as an analyst on Rockets telecasts, also was arraigned on three counts of aggravated sexual assault and three counts of indecency with a child, Assistant District Attorney Lance Long said.



"Calvin adamantly insists that he is innocent of these charges and is anxious to present his side to a jury at trial," Murphy's lawyer Rusty Hardin said.



Hardin said the indictment was expected and "it is important for everyone to remember that the grand jury has not heard from Calvin nor many witnesses on his behalf that insist these allegations are absolutely untrue."



Murphy initially was charged March 29 after five daughters accused him of sexually abusing them between 1988-1991, when they ranged in age from 6 to 13. Murphy, 55, has contended the allegations stem from a family battle over money, an explanation Long has dismissed.



He remains free on $20,000 bail. If convicted, Murphy could receive five years to life in prison for the aggravated offenses and two to 20 years for the indecency violations. He also could be eligible for probation because he does not have a criminal history.



Murphy, a guard for the Rockets from 1970-83, has 14 children by nine women.



During his tenure with the team, he made nearly 90 percent of his free throws, including 78 straight in one stretch during the 1980-81 season when he set a record single-season percentage of .958. During that year, in 215 free throw attempts, he missed only nine.



The 5-foot-9 Murphy averaged 17.9 points and shot 89.2 percent from the line during his NBA career. He scored 17,949 points, a franchise high until Hakeem Olajuwon surpassed the total.

(SUBS 8th graf to correct record on free throws)

ok, y'all he's my cousin and it's so embarrasing. :eek:

His mother and my mother are first cousins so that makes him my third cousin. If my great aunt BabyDare was still alive this would kill her. :sad:

He basically lost his mind after he retired. Oh and his whole immediate family are alchi's...His mother and most of his aunts and their children, including Calvin. He was such the star in the family until he retired and then left his wife of 20 years. :rolleyes:

One of his daughters from his first wife has a baby with Robert Horry who our cousin Cedrick (her 2nd my 3rd) beat down in a club cause Robert slapped her. :lol:

I'll be happy to add more gossip as I find out. :hatoff:

So does this mean it's true Ketta?? Cause he sounded so sincere about being innocent on TV. :eek:
I haven't a clue if it's true or not..I don't think many people in the family know his children with the other women? :confused:

He could very well be innoncent. They have been fighting over money because he's a complete jerk.

What does he looks like?

14 kids by 9 women. He's a complete idiot. What a louse. He didn't learn anything. All that child support vanishing from his checks.

Well Calvin was one of the shortest players of all-time in the NBA. He was also a national Champion batan twirler. :D

If I was home I would fish out a family reunion shot of him but I'm not and I certainly won't remember when I get home at 10pm. :tape:
