Ex-Michigan Wide Receiver Darryl Stonum Convicted In Domestic Violence Case
PONTIAC (CBS Detroit/AP) - Former Michigan wide receiver Darryl Stonum has been jailed and faces sentencing next month after being convicted in a domestic violence case.
Stonum, who was dismissed from Wolverines in 2012, was convicted Wednesday of one count of felonious assault and two counts of domestic violence. He was accused of assaulting a woman in Southfield on two separate occasions in 2013.
A jury in Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac acquitted Stonum of one felonious assault count. His bond has been revoked ahead of a July 16 sentencing before Judge James Alexander.
Stonum testified in his own defense during the trial. He denied being violent or raising his voice, saying he’ll “avoid confrontation at all costs.”
Stonum started 25 games for the Wolverines, catching 76 passes for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns. He also returned 62 kickoffs for 1,538 yards and holds the single-season kickoff return mark with 39 returns for 1,001 yards in 2009.
