OK, even for Cincinnati, this is a bungle...

Prosecutors in Cincy unveiled a seven-count indictment against former Bengal linebacker Nate Webster, accusing him of having sexual relations with a minor.

According to court records, Webster is charged with five counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, one count of sexual battery and one count of gross sexual imposition.

Gross sexual imposition? Sounds painful.

Hamilton County prosecutor Joe Deters told WCPO that "the relationship lasted from June 2009 to March of this year. The girl, who was 15 when the relationship started, is now 17."

Deters also told WCPO that "Webster threatened to kill the girl and her family if she told anyone about their relationship."

Law enforcement served a search warrant on Webster's home this morning, and guns were found in the residence. Oops.

Deters will be holding a news conference around 11:30am Cincinnati time, and more information will be released.

Webster last played for the Denver Broncos in 2008, and has been coaching high school football.

More later...
