Davidson County District Attorney General Torry Johnson said former Vanderbilt University wide receiver Chris Boyd was not testifying that his quarterback helped move an alleged rape victim back into a dorm room on June 23 when he entered a guilty plea in the case last week.
“What he was asking was, the factual statement by Mr. Thurman, that the text sent and received, that those texts in fact were sent and received,” Johnson said at a news conference this afternoon.
Johnson was referring to a recitation of facts in court Friday by Tom Thurman, the deputy district attorney handling the case, in which Thurman read a text message by Boyd in which he identified starting Vanderbilt quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels as having helped move the victim back into the room.
