Former Ohio State and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver David Boston is facing up to 3 years in prison after pleading guilty in a West Palm Beach court Tuesday.
He was charged last year with punching a woman in the head. Police say he was drunk at his Boca Raton home when he punched the woman twice in the head. The woman needed 10 stitiches!
He'll hear his fate at a December 10th hearing.
His attorney, Guy Fronstin, says he is "extremely remorseful for his actions and accepted full responsibility."
He plead guilty hoping to receive a lesser sentence. Boston was drafted by the Cardinals in 1999 and stayed with team until 2002. In the highlight of his NFL career, he made the Pro Bowl in 2001 (98 REC 1,598 YDs, 8 TDs).
His career didn't quite pan out as intended, later on lingering around with the San Diego Chargers (2003), Miami Dolphins (2004–2005), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2006) andToronto Argonauts (CFL) (2008).
In 2007, his final NFL season, he had some legal troubles - a DUI arrest and testing positive for GHB.
