Ex-Lions WR Tommie Boyd to be sentenced in underage sex case

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich, — A former Detroit Lions wide receiver who pleaded guilty to a second-degree criminal sexual conduct charge on accusations involving a 15-year-old girl is set to be sentenced.

Thirty-nine-year-old Tommie Boyd is scheduled to appear Thursday in Judge Diane Druzinski’s Macomb County Circuit courtroom. Boyd entered his plea in January in exchange for authorities dropping five other charges.

The victim and her parents were in court when Boyd entered his plea and said they agreed with the deal. The girl said Boyd offered her $5,000 to have sex, then gave her $200.
