Rhode Island Basketball Player Accused Of Filming His Sexual Encounters, Which Ended Up On Facebook

Two women at the University of Rhode Island say they had consensual sex last fall with freshman forward Jonathan Holton, who earlier this month was named to the Atlantic 10's all-rookie team. But Holton allegedly made videos of those encounters. And some of those videos, according to a Providence TV station, wound up on Facebook and were forwarded to as many as 30 people. Four videos have been turned over to campus police.

Holton, 21, was charged today with two counts of video voyeurism. He was arraigned, released, and ordered to have no contact with either woman. The school has also suspended him from the basketball team. Holton's Twitter account is private, but a tipster tells us Holton has tweeted his intention to leave URI. The tipster also said there may be many more videos.
