Carlos Molina Arrested Five Days Before PPV Bout

by David P. Greisman

Junior-middleweight titleholder Carlos Molina was arrested in Las Vegas earlier this week on a pair of years-old warrants out of the state of Wisconsin — and while the arrest came just five days before his bout with Jermall Charlo on this weekend’s pay-per-view, the fight is expected to still go on.

All of that is according to a report by Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports.

Molina is facing a warrant from January 2007 by one jurisdiction in Wisconsin with failing to register as a sex offender, and also has an open warrant from another jurisdiction dating back to 2005 on a charge of misdemeanor disorderly conduct, Iole reported.

In 2002, Molina pleaded no contest to a charge of second-degree sexual assault of a child.   

Molina “has been placed on an immigration hold,” Iole reported. “Molina was born in Mexico but lives in the U.S.”

Molina had a hearing scheduled for this morning, according to the Clark County Detention Center’s online records. Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy Promotions told Iole that he expected Molina to be released and to still fight on Saturday’s undercard to Canelo Alvarez vs. Alfredo Angulo.

Wisconsin online court records note that Molina’s alleged sex registry violation, a felony, dates back to July 2006, with the warrant filed six months later. The disorderly conduct accusation dates back to May 2005, with the warrant issued in September 2005.

The 30-year-old won the IBF world title in September with a win over Ishe Smith. He is 22-5-2 with 6 knockouts.

[QUOTE=Renal Colic;14300869]I agree actually. It's not as if the 15-year-old of today is a sweet, innocent, sex-naive angel. On the contrary, she's probably already handled more cox in her life than the 50-year-old of the 1980s had in her's. Whether…

If Molina was a female teacher he would have got a medal.
