Ex-Arizona, NFL player gets prison for tax fraud

AUSTIN, Texas — Former NFL player Greg Boyd has been sentenced to almost
three years in prison for income tax fraud.

A statement issued by the U.S. attorney’s office in Austin says Boyd was
sentenced to two years and nine months in prison. He could have gotten up to
nine years in prison.

A jury found Boyd guilty in November of filing fraudulent income tax returns in
2004, 2005 and 2006, reporting no income each year. Boyd said he believed that
only federal employees, federal contractors and investors in federal securities
owed income taxes.

Boyd was a defensive back at Arizona. He was Miami’s 13th-round pick in the
1973 NFL draft before being traded to New England, where he played in 1973. He
played in New Orleans in 1974.
