He was arrested Monday.

In the newest case against Curry, the teen is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl over the holidays. Warrants say that Curry contacted the girl over Facebook, picked her up from her mother’s house and got her high off marijuana at his house before having sex with her.
The girl is from a split family and went to stay with her mom on Dec. 29, but went missing around 11 p.m. Dec. 29 while her mother was sleeping.
“She was picked up by Curry and went to his residence on 3501 Snowden Drive,” a sheriff’s report says.
That’s where the girl says she agreed to have sex with Curry. The girl called her stepmother the next morning and asked the stepparent to pick her up from a convenience store. When she was picked up, the girl was crying and upset.
Her stepmother took her to University Hospital to get checked out. They did not contact authorities about the case until the next day after the girl’s father asked authorities to press charges.
In that case, the girl ran way from home Oct. 1 after asking Curry to pick her up from her home. They ended up back at his home, where she had sex with him. Afterward, she told Curry that she was going to call the police on him, and he left the residence. The rest of the day, the girl said she spent time with Curry’s sister.
The girl told investigators that she was upset that Curry “played her” and she wanted him to get into trouble. He was arrested and those charges are pending.
