In Hart's memoir I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons, he revealed that his father spent four years in prison when he was charged with rape.
"I take a few steps and I trip over something," his father wrote in the book of when he entered a home high on drugs to gamble. "I feel around and it's a body. I don't know if it's alive or dead or sleeping or high."
"Now, this cop gave a statement that he looked through the window and saw me having sex with this body," he wrote. "Mind you, the body was alive, and he told me it was a woman."
He remained in jail until his court hearing 18 months later. He was sentenced to four to eight years in prison, but was released after four.
According to court documents obtained from the Municipal Court of Philadelphia County, Witherspoon was arrested on June 16, 1979 for the alleged rape.
He was also charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, unlawful restraint and indecent assault.
