A Hardin teen entered a guilty plea in a Ray County courtroom late last week. According to online court documents, Michael Boydston, 19, was originally charged with two counts of forcible sodomy. In a plea deal, he plead guilty to two felony counts of assault.
Boydston has been sentenced to seven years in the Department of Corrections on each count. He will serve 120 days shock incarceration and then reappear before a judge. Assuming the report indicates good behavior and no issues, Boydston will be placed on five years probation.
