Former NFL quarterback Trevone Boykin was sentenced to three years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to charges stemming from a 2018 incident, The Associated Press reports.
Boykin and prosecutors negotiated the sentence in return for his guilty plea to aggravated assault and witness tampering. He'll be eligible for parole in less than a year.
The former Seattle Seahawks QB was arrested in Texas in March 2018 after his girlfriend, Shabrika Bailey, said he broke her jaw in two places.
Boykin, a former star at TCU, signed with the Seahawks in 2016. After releasing him in 2017, the team signed him to a futures contract in 2018 before cutting him again after his arrest.
