Former Seattle Seahawks QB sentenced to three years in prison
Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin has been sentenced to three years in prison following a domestic violence incident in 2018.
Boykin worked out a deal with prosecutors that will also offer him an opportunity for parole in less than a yer, per Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.
Former Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated assault and witness tampering charges stemming from the 2018 beating of his girlfriend.
Boykin and prosecutors in Texas agreed for Boykin to serve three years in prison, according to The Associated Press, and Boykin’s attorney said his client will become eligible for parole in less than a year.
Boykin has remained jailed in Fort Worth since December after he left a hotel without paying for his room.
The Seahawks cut him in March 2018 after Shabrika Bailey accused Boykin of breaking her jaw in two places after a string of run-ins with the law.
Boykin has had a hard time staying out of trouble in the past few years. The former TCU star was arrested on charges of public intoxication and marijuana possession charges in March of 2017. He was also infamously involved in a brawl at a bar in San Antonio just days before the Horned Frogs were set to play in the Alamo Bowl in 2016.
The Seahawks signed Boykin as a free agent in 2016. He appeared in five games that season, completing 13-of-18 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown.
It seems unlikely Boykin could find a path back to the NFL in light of his run-ins with the law.
