WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Former NFL wide receiver David Boston could face nearly three years in prison for punching a woman last year.
Palm Beach County prosecutors say the 34-year-old Boston pleaded guilty Monday to aggravated battery. He faces up to 35 months in prison at a Dec. 7 hearing.
Authorities say Boston had been drinking at a Boca Raton home last November when he punched a woman twice in the head, leaving a wound requiring 10 stiches.
Boston played at Ohio State and went to the Pro Bowl with the Arizona Cardinals in 2001. He also played for San Diego and Miami before injuries and legal problems ended his NFL career.
Boston's attorney, Guy Fronstin, says his client is extremely remorseful for his actions and accepted full responsibility by entering a guilty plea.
