Philadelphia Eagles offensive guard Josh Sills indicted on rape, kidnapping charges in Ohio
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia Eagles offensive guard Josh Sills has been charged with rape and kidnapping in Ohio, the attorney general announced Wednesday.
Sills, 25, was charged by a Guernsey County Common Pleas Court grand jury with one count of rape and one kidnapping, both first-degree felonies.
“In December 2019, the indictment states, Sills engaged in non-consensual sexual activity and held a victim against her will. The crime was reported immediately and the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office conducted a detailed investigation,” the Ohio Attorney General said in a press release.
Officials say the case has been presented to the grand jury and is being prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office of Special Prosecutors.
Sills is a resident of Sarahsville, Ohio.
He spent the first four years of his college career in West Virginia before moving to the state of Oklahoma in 2020.
He was one of three undrafted rookies to earn a seed for the Eagles’ 2022 season.
Sills was issued a subpoena to appear in Guernsey County Common Pleas Court on February 16.
Action News has reached out to the Eagles for comment.
