Hermes franca facing some serious charges

While browsing the internet I came across something a little crazy. Apparently Hermes Franca, an ex UFC fighter, flew into Portland, OR to face sexual misconduct charges. The brief overview is a former female student, who is a minor has filed charges against him. There are 2 counts of unlawful penetration and 7 counts of sexual abuse of a person under the age of 14.

Hermes has pleaded not guilty to all counts, and voluntarily flew from Brazil to deal with the allegations.

A good link to the news report is http://content.usatoday.com/communities/mma/post/2011/05/hermes-franca-accused-of-sexual-abuse/1

Weird the allegations say that it happened in December, I saw Hermes in January at a tournament in Oregon... He seemed like a nice polite guy, and was helping coach everyone who was competing. Hopefully the truth whatever it may be, is found out.
