CORRECTION: The headline and this story have been altered to reflect the fact that text messages seeming to implicate another player in being at the scene during the aftermath of the assault were incorrect. I apologize for the error
Vanderbilt quarterback Chris Boyd pleaded guilty to a lesser charge than the accessory charge he faced for helping cover up a sexual assault that has rocked the football program.
Some of the text messages read in court as part of these proceedings could deepen the black eye Vanderbilt already received from this case. Boyd's status is still unclear at this point. Stay tuned.
