Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Trevone Boykin, has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Boykin was convicted after pleading guilty on Wednesday to charges of aggravated assault and witness tampering. The former quarterback had been in Tarrant County Jail in Fort Worth due to failing to pay for a hotel room. Boykin’s attorney has stated that within less than a year, his client will be eligible for parole.
The charges come from a case that was opened in March of 2018. Shabrika Bailey, Boykin’s ex-girlfriend, claimed that Boykin had broke her jaw in two places. Due to the allegations, the Seahawks terminated Boykin’s contract.
The TCU alumni had been arrested on several different occasions before the March 2018 allegations. In 2016, Boykin was arrested for fighting at a bar in San Antonio. He pleaded no contest for resisting arrest and subject to deferred adjudication probation for a year.
In 2017, Boykin ran into trouble once again. Boykin was a passenger in a car that crashed into a tavern and hit seven citizens on the sidewalk. As a result, the ex-quarterback was arrested for public intoxication and marijuana possession.
Before being cut by the Seahawks, Boykin played in five games, completed 13 passes on 18 attempted for 145 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
The former QB had a more impressive resume during his four years at TCU. He completed a total 829 passes for 10,727 yards, 86 touchdowns and 37 interceptions. He finished with a career passer efficiency rating of 143.2.
