The 21-year old Boyd was charged with one felony count of being an accessory after the fact. According to a press release, he is “essentially accused of taking part in an attempted cover up of the sexual assault through his advice to certain defendants who were indicted last week. “ He was suspended from the football team. The other men indicted Friday were high school friends and teammates of Brandon Vandenburg, one of the four former Vanderbilt players charged with multiple counts of rape.
Metro Nashville Police Steve Anderson said Friday: “We are looking at all persons who may have been involved in this event, before, during and after the fact. Additional charges cannot be ruled out.”
Boyd is a junior wide receiver with 81 career receptions for 1,247 yards and 13 touchdowns. He caught 50 passes for 774 yards and five touchdowns last year.
All charges in the case stem from a rape of an unconscious woman in a Vanderbilt dormitory back on June 23.
