Camacho’s attorney Linda George released an official statement on Tuesday stating: "Sometime after leaving the home, the complaint was filed alleging the actions against Mr. Camacho’s teenage son. Mr. Camacho only recently learned of the complaint and accordingly voluntarily reported to officials so that this matter can be resolved. He maintains a good relationship with his sons and all would like to put this matter behind."
Camacho won world titles at super-featherweight, lightweight and light welterweight in the 1980s. His last title bout came against then Oscar De La Hoya for the world title in 1997, lossing by unanimous decision.
Camacho ended his boxing career with a record of 79-5-3 in 2009.
Prior to this latest charge Camacho was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2007 for the burglary of a computer store in Mississippi.
A judge eventually suspended all but one year of the sentence and gave Camacho probation but he did serve two weeks in jail after violating that probation.
