Former star athlete violates probation terms of child rape conviction

COLUMBIA, Tenn. -
A one-time Mt. Pleasant High School football star is back behind bars charged with violating terms of his probation.

In March, former quarterback Princeton Harlan pleaded guilty to facilitation of child rape as part of a plea deal to stay out of prison.

The guilty plea follows an October 2012 arrest when Harlan and two others were charged with child rape after authorities discovered they had a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old girl for several months beginning that July.

As part of Harlan's plea deal, he was also put on the sex offender registry.

Mt. Pleasant police said he violated terms of that condition by playing in a park where minors were present.

"It's in his probation that he cannot be in a park or a place where children are likely to be," said Captain Paul Westmoreland.

Authorities obtained a warrant for his arrest and arrived at Harlan's residence Monday afternoon.

"Officers come to a Mt. Pleasant motel near Highway 43 where Harlan has reportedly been living for the last several weeks," Westmoreland said.

He was found with a 17-year-old juvenile as well as 57 bags of marijuana packaged for resale.

Authorities also confiscated $250 in cash.

According to police, Harlan said the marijuana belonged to the juvenile girl, while she told investigators that she did not know it existed.

The juvenile was not charged as the marijuana was found to be out of plain sight

Harlan's bond was originally set at $75,000 but Nashville's News 2 has learned that it has been revoked pending a new hearing scheduled later this month.
