Lance Armstrong’s Son Luke Charged With Sexual Assault Of A 16-Year-Old

Luke Armstrong, the son of cycling legend Lance Armstrong, has been charged with sexual assault of a minor, a second-degree felony.

Armstrong, who played fullback for the Rice football team from 2018-2020 before opting out of last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, allegedly assaulted the victim at a party in 2018.

“The alleged victim told police in November 2020 she was assaulted by Luke Armstrong after he drove her from a party to his father’s house,” according to the Associated Press.

“Because she was 16 at the time, Luke Armstrong has been charged with felony sexual assault of child.”

Armstrong was arrested on Tuesday this week.

The defense for Luke Armstrong says that the charges should never have been filed and that the relationship was consensual.

“A complete review of the facts will confirm what has been alleged absolutely did not occur and a proper and thorough legal process will exonerate Luke,” attorney Randy Leavitt said. “What occurred three years ago in high school was not a crime and was not a sexual assault. It was a consensual relationship then and continued consensually between two young people, with both ultimately going their separate ways.

“These charges should never have been filed, certainly not three years later. However, thankfully, the Texas court system works, and will establish Luke’s innocence.”

Armstrong has been released on bond.
