Hermes Franca Arrested in Oregon on Sexual Abuse Charges

 Options: ShareThis| Printer Friendly
Thursday, May 19, 2011
by Mike Whitman (mwhitman@sherdog.com)

Veteran lightweight and former Ultimate Fighting Championship competitor Hermes Franca has been arrested in Oregon on alleged charges of sexual abuse.

Franca, 36, previously resided in the state and operated Team Hermes Franca Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Clackamas, Ore. The fighter allegedly flew to Oregon on Monday from Florida, where he now resides, and turned himself in to Clackamas County Jail on seven counts of sexual abuse in the first degree and two counts of unlawful sexual penetration in the second degree.

The news was first reported by Examiner.com on Thursday; Sherdog.com confirmed the news with the Clackamas County Jail and a source close to Franca shortly thereafter. According to a Clackamas County Jail official, Franca’s bail has been set at $250,000, and a trial is scheduled for July 12 at 9 a.m. in the Clackamas County Courthouse in Oregon City, Ore.

A nine-year veteran of the sport, Franca’s career highlight came in 2007 when he challenged Sean Sherk for the UFC lightweight title. Franca has won three of his last four bouts and is currently scheduled to face Drew Fickett for the Maximum Fighting Championship lightweight strap on June 10.

frontrowbrian -  Will Tito bail him out?

 My first thought.

There's got to be no chance he gets into Canada in 3 weeks with this hanging over him...even if he is out of jail by then.

 right but if the average person looked at him and you asked them to categorize him, 10 out of 10 would say hispanic.

Yeah I doubt Canada would allow him in the country. Franca also has a DUI on his record and that's enough to get you banned from Canada.


Pavlich better apologize to this man and beg him to step in and save the card

 McKee already told Pav that he'd be ready for 6/10, he was in camp for a possible Aoki fight...make it happen Mark.

How you gonna tell your fucking title holder that he's not the champ anymore and that he's done?

 It looks like some small time reporter up in Oregon just stumbled onto this via public record.  He flew into town Monday and surrendered himself Tuesday and nobody knew anything about it until today.
