Like too many successful athletes, David Meggett ran into trouble after his career was over. Meggett had three notable run-ins with the law.
In 1998 he was accused of a sex offense in Toronto. He was not convicted.
In 2006 he was accused of a similar charge in the Carolinas and that was resolved with a misdemeanor conviction.
The last straw was his 2010 felony conviction for another sex offense and a related charge. That led to a 30-year jail sentence.
