Former NFL player David Boston gets 6 months
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (AP) - Former NFL wide receiver David Boston has been sentenced to six months in jail and five years of probation for punching a woman last year.
His attorney, Guy Fronstin, confirmed that the 34-year-old Boston was sentenced Friday. He pleaded guilty to aggravated battery last month. Fronstin says his client has turned his life around and been fully committed to treatment since his arrest.
Authorities say Boston had been drinking at a Boca Raton home in November 2011 when he punched a woman twice in the head, leaving a wound requiring 10 stiches.
Boston played at Ohio State and went to the Pro Bowl with the Arizona Cardinals in 2001. He also played for San Diego and Miami before injuries and legal problems ended his NFL career.
