OH - Stephen Boyd convicted of raping male UT students
Convicted felon Stephen J. Boyd showed little emotion yesterday as a jury found him guilty of raping two University of Toledo male students last year in an abandoned apartment building near Ottawa Park.
A Lucas County Common Pleas jury deliberated about one hour before returning with guilty verdicts on four counts of rape. Boyd, 33, will be sentenced April 28 by Judge William Skow.
Boyd faces a potential 40-year prison sentence. A hearing will be held at sentencing to determine a sex offender classification for him.
Boyd was arrested hours after he sexually assaulted a 25-year-old man on Oct. 2 in a vacant apartment in the 2200 block of Torrey Hill Drive. The victim, who knew his attacker through a class at UT, met Boyd outside a campus bar after Boyd promised him a quick profit on a $5 investment.
Instead, the student was duped into smoking crack-cocaine, threatened with a blunt instrument, beaten, and raped when they got inside the abandoned apartment.
Boyd sexually assaulted a 20-year-old man in the same apartment on Sept. 28 after forcing him to smoke crack cocaine. Boyd lured the victim from his West Toledo home on the pretense of getting beer

From May 2004:
A Toledo man who was convicted in the sexual assaults of two college men denied committing the crimes yesterday during his sentencing in Lucas County Common Pleas Court...
However, Judge Skow said the defendant was a serious risk to the public and likely to commit similar offenses again. Judge Skow imposed a 20-year prison sentence... Judge Skow also accepted the recommendation of a court psychologist and classified Boyd as a sexual predator - the most serious classification for a sexual offender.
Judge Skow said Boyd achieved the highest score in the seven years that the psychologist has been evaluating sex offenders for the classification, and Boyd was "extremely dangerous and a serial rapist." Boyd was accused in 1994 of sexually assaulting a UT student in an abandoned apartment house in the 1900 block of Macomber Street.
