He was recently put under arrest for allegedly raping a 14 year old child in 2008. According to a Brooklyn Criminal Lawyer, Scott met the girl and was friendly to her but denies raping her. Reports indicate that Scott allegedly worked out a financial arrangement with the girl’s friend and the girl’s pimp. They claim he had taken the two girls to his New York City apartment, where the alleged rape occurred. The 14 year old girl called her mother after the incident, who then called police. Scott has been charged with rape, child endangerment and patronizing a prostitute. If convicted, he faces up to 7 years in prison. Scott was released on $10,000.00 bail says a Brooklyn Criminal Lawyer and will be arraigned in Manhattan Supreme Court; located at 100 Centre St., New York, NY 10013.
