Rae Carruth 1 of 16

Professional athletes are role models for millions of people, but many of them shouldn't be. Even though they are in the spotlight, that doesn't mean they always make the best decisions. These 15 professional athletes from various sports committed shocking crimes!

Rae Carruth was a wide receiver for the Carolina Panthers up until 2001 when things took a horrible turn. He was charged with conspiring to murder the mother of his unborn child. She was eight months pregnant and was shot 8 times in a drive-by shooting that he allegedly set up. He paid a $3 million bail and said that he would turn himself in if either the baby or mother died. The baby was saved but the mother passed and Rae went on the run. He was found a month later in the trunk of a car and is now serving a 24 year sentence for the crime.
