Mateen Cleaves

Former Michigan State basketball star Mateen Cleaves is facing sex crime charges in connection with an incident that happened after a charity golf event near Flint, Michigan. Cleaves, 39, is charged with unlawful imprisonment, assault with intent to commit criminal sexual penetration, second-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. Cleaves met a 24-year-old woman at the event in September and is accused of keeping her against her will and sexually assaulting her. 'The evidence in this case will show that the alleged actions of this defendant were not only criminal but arose out of a sense of entitlement sometimes found in prominent people,' Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a statement. Prosecutors say Cleaves had drinks with the alleged victim, her boyfriend and others at a bar. When the night was over, the woman's boyfriend gave a friend a ride home and she got in a car with Cleaves and expected to be driven back to the golf club, prosecutors said. Instead, she was taken to a motel against her will. After being assaulted, the woman escaped the motel room and received help by an another woman staying in a different room.
