Boyd sentenced to prison in sex case

Former Detroit Lions receiver Tommie Boyd has been sentenced to

at least five years in prison for having sexual contact with a

teenage girl.

The Oakland Press of Pontiac reports that Boyd was sentenced

Thursday, a month after pleading no contest to two charges,

including second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a 15-year-old

girl at a movie theater in Oakland County. He had served as the

girl’s trainer in sports.

Boyd already is in prison for inappropriate contact with a girl

in Macomb County. He played for the Lions in the late 1990s and

later worked as a personal trainer and track coach at Fraser High

School.
