Burke was arrested in Minnesota and charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct, as noted by Daily Mail. So, who was the victim?
She is a seven-year-old kid. And surprisingly, the young girl to whom Burke sexually harassed was the daughter of a woman with whom the former NFL star was romantically linked. Yes, you read that right; she was none other than a baby girl of the lady Burke was seeing.
A member of the Badgers' 1998 Big Ten championship team, Burke's lousy behavior came to light after the poor child told her mother about the immoral act her fatherly figure was performing. She told her mom all the assaults she faced numerous times from Burke.

Burke was released on Monday, as per jail staff. Besides that, the ex-Arizona Cardinals player denies the accusation. According to him, he is being 'railroaded.' Now, what is the truth, sooner or later, it will come out of the shadow, but till then, no one can say anything for sure.
