Former Lions WR Boyd Facing More Sex Charges

Former Lions wide receiver Tommie Boyd faces another criminal sexual conduct charge after authorities say the high school track coach had sexual contact with a third teenage student. The 38-year-old was arraigned in the latest case Wednesday in Roseville. He was arraigned last week on charges of criminal sexual conduct and accosting a child for immoral purposes in two other cases.

The latest charge accuses Boyd of forcing a then 16-year-old girl to have sex in 2006 at Fraser High School, where he was a substitute teacher and track coach. Defense lawyer Todd Flood says Boyd is not guilty. Boyd was being held at the Macomb County Jail and his bond was increased from $300,000 to $400,000 Wednesday. Boyd played for the Lions in 1997 and 1998.
