Calvin Murphy charged with sexual assault



Allegations involve TV analyst's children

Associated Press
HOUSTON -- Hall of Fame guard Calvin Murphy surrendered to authorities Monday after being charged with sexually assaulting his daughters more than a decade ago.

Murphy was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault and three counts of indecency, said Harris County District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal.

The former Houston Rockets star had no comment when he surrendered. Murphy's attorney, Rusty Hardin, did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

The charges involve five daughters who were under 17, the Harris County district clerk's office said. The daughters said Murphy sexually abused them between 1988-91, according to an affidavit by Drew Carter of the Texas Rangers.

The prosecutor's office notified other jurisdictions about the charges. "He has a number of families around the country, according to our research," Rosenthal said.

Murphy, 55, a TV analyst for the Rockets, was a star guard for the franchise from 1970-83. The 5-foot-9 player averaged 17.9 points and shot 89.2 percent from the line during his NBA career. He averaged 33.1 points in college at Niagara.

The Rockets granted Murphy a leave of absence from his broadcasting duties.

There was plenty of this on the news last nite. Calvin's side of the story is that these 3 tried to get money from him and when he refused, they said "you'll be sorry." So who knows what will happen. The sad thing is, he could be totally innocent and cleared of anything and his rep will still be tarnished to some extent.

or he could be totally guilty, get off, and those girls will be villified as money grubbers when in reality, they are victims of a horrific crime.
