Criminal defense: Trevone Boykin arrested for assault in Texas

It seems that football players are frequently in the news for a variety of different reasons but especially when they are suspected or accused of a crime. For example, former quarterback Trevone Boykin recently made news in Texas. He is likely considering his criminal defense after police say he assaulted his girlfriend.

The incident happened on a day in March. Police claim that conflict began between Boykin and his long-term girlfriend over a text. He allegedly became upset when she would not show him a text on her phone. She claims that he then put her in a choke hold until she blacked out. When she awoke, she claims she was covered in blood.

The woman told police that he put her in the shower in an attempt to clean her up before transporting her to the hospital. He reportedly left the hospital after medical staff separated the pair. Reports indicate that both sides of the woman's jaw were broken. Boykin was later arrested at his home without incident. Charges against him include aggravated assault with serious bodily injury.

It is often difficult to determine what happened in incidents of alleged domestic violence when there are not witnesses present. Regardless of the accusations against a person in Texas, he or she is presumed innocent unless there is sufficient evidence presented in court to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. To help ensure that he has someone fighting on his behalf in court, Boykin may choose to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to guide him through the criminal justice process.
