Clinton Tyquiem Simmons, a 22-year-old member of the Miami Heat Street Band, was arrested last Tuesday on three counts of having sex with a minor. The unnamed victim —who is between the ages of 12 and 15 — met Simmons while she worked as a youth councilor at a band camp last summer where he was an assistant band director. The two had consensual sex at the girl’s home in Pembrook Pines, Florida last February while no one else was home, and the crime was discovered when the victim’s mother read about it in her daughter’s journal. Simmons is being held in leiu of $15,000 bail.
