CINCINNATI - Former Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Nate Webster will have to serve only 10 years of his 12-year prison sentence for having sex with the underage daughter of a former assistant coach.

The Ohio 1st District Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that prosecutors didn't prove one of four counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor on which Webster was convicted last year. It upheld his other convictions.

Prosecutors said Webster had sex with the girl several times in 2009 when she was 15. Webster said the sex occurred when she was 16, Ohio's legal age of consent.

The victim said the encounters began when she agreed to babysit Webster's kids at his home. She said Webster threatened to hurt her and her family if she told anyone.

Before the trial, Webster turned down a plea deal that would have sent him to prison for four years.

Webster played for the Bengals in 2004-05. He also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2000-03) and Denver Broncos (2006-08).
