  • Report: Former Giants Michael Boley Arrested For Child Abuse

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/05/02/...r-child-abuse/

    Excerpt: "Back in late 2011, it was reported that New York Giants linebacker Michael Boley was under investigation for repeatedly abusing his five-year-old son. At the time, his lawyer dismissed the accusation as nothing more than an attempt by the Mother to secure more child support money so that she could "increase her lifestyle."

    “These allegations were brought to our attention along with outrageous monetary demands in a contested child support case which she filed over a year ago,” said Randall M. Kessler, Boley’s attorney. “At final trial about a month ago, she did not seek an order restricting visitation. The only relief she requested from the judge was that child support be more than quintupled to, in her words, ‘increase her lifestyle.’”

    Those accusations were immediately followed up by another woman in Georgia, who also has a child with Boley, filing paperwork with a local court asking that his visitation be supervised.

    It wasn't the first time Boley had dealt with a domestic issue as the NFL suspended him for one game in 2009 after being arrested and charged with three counts of domestic battery. He allegedly struck his then wife, Chantelle." Read more...

    This is my interpretation of what I read

    No. Usually child abuse is sexual mistreatment, physical injury or neglect of a child. If Michael Boley was taking his day out on the child then that would qualify as abuse. For him to plea bargain, which the judge does not have to accept, then it was probably something relatively mild and something that he wants to get over with. Hell, maybe he is accepting an Alford plea which says he is not accepting guilt, though there is enough evidence to get a guilty conviction. Pretty much a conviction with an asterisk.

    Most judges/courts are fine with spankings and will not even hear a case if that is the extent of an accusation.

    Then again this could all be a ploy to get money and prevent any child visitation rights. Who knows but those involved?

    .

    Yup, if they aren't prosecuting for this, it's probably something most of us growing up had to put up with our parents.

    LB Boley

    Wow, I cant believe was arrested for Child Abuse.
    I'm shocked.
    Seems like it was good they cut him, although it was for football reasons.

    I believe the Giants recognize that they need another LB before the season starts.
    I'm sure they will pick up a LB.

    That is what I am wondering. They said it was NOT of sexual nature, only physical. So did he spank his kid or was something significantly more serious done? That's why I hate jumping to conclusions about charges like this and others that are so vague but people automatically think the worse when they hear them.
    Amen

    This may seem morbid, but I assure you it's not-- does anyone know to what extent the abuse went to?

    Well, based upon the plea bargin eached- no record if he does the program, i would assume the charges are viewed as either too hard to prove or are not incredibly serious (compartatively speaking)
