Famous Athletes Convicted of Sexual Assault

A list of famous athletes who have been convicted of sexual assault or related crimes, including rape. Both professional and amateur athletes have been included, although amateurs on this list must have competed in the Olympics, or some other equal level of competition and be somewhat recognizable to the public. This is a mostly complete list of athlete celebrities who were convicted for rape or sexual harassment, but feel free to add the names of athletes convicted of a sex crime in the comments if any are missing.

What athletes have been convicted of sex crimes? From rape by NFL players to sexual harassment in the MLB, there are a shocking amount of examples of sports figures arrested for sexual assault. For whatever reason, sports competitors (am I allowed to say "jocks"?) have a knack for getting themselves into trouble with the law.
