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's attorney, Guy Fronstin, says his client is extremely remorseful for his actions and accepted full responsibility by entering a guilty plea.
