WRCB said it had obtained an affidavit which says Walker admitted to having sex with a 14-year-old girl. The victim's parents called police after finding out their daughter had sex with Walker, "over the course of the last couple months," according to the affidavit.

The station said court documents reveal Walker admitted to staying with the girl's family over the last few months.

Walker was out on bond when he was arrested.
