At the time, Boley and his attorney accused the mother of trumping up the charges, and going after an unreasonable amount of child support. Boley’s attorney, Randall M. Kessler, tells TMZ … “These allegations were brought to our attention along with outrageous monetary demands in a contested child support case which she filed over a year ago.” Kessler added, “At final trial about a month ago, she did not seek an order restricting visitation. The only relief she requested from the judge was that child support be more than quintupled to, in her words, ‘increase her lifestyle TMZ is now reporting that back in February, Boley was arrested for those same child abuse charges, three days after the Giants had released Boley. The details of the abuse still have never been discussed, but we do know it was of a physical nature, and not sexual. Boley’s was scheduled to go in front of a grand jury in February 2013, bu instead, the linebacker struck a plea deal with prosecutors.

Boley was also required to turn himself into authorities. He was booked on February 8, posed for a mug shot and was released from custody later that day.
