Crawford Found Guilty on Two Charges Over Body Shop Beef

by David P. Greisman

Terence Crawford was found guilty on Wednesday of two counts stemming from an April incident at a local body shop, while a Nebraska judge said the junior welterweight champion was not guilty of a third.

When Crawford turned himself in to police earlier this year, he was facing four misdemeanor charges: theft of services, criminal mischief, third-degree assault, and trespassing, according to a report at the time in the Omaha World-Herald.

There were no longer assault or theft charges against him when his trial took place Wednesday.


“Douglas County Judge Marcena Hendrix found Crawford guilty of two misdemeanors — property damage and disorderly conduct — and not guilty of another — trespassing,” the World-Herald reported.

A sentencing hearing has been set for Dec. 15. Crawford’s attorney told KETV Omaha that he will appeal the judge’s verdict.

Crawford was accused of being part of a group that arrived at the body shop to retrieve his vehicle. The body shop owner, however, said that Crawford still owed money for the service. Crawford’s lawyer said at the time that there was a disagreement between the fighter and owner about the work that had been done and how much he was being charged.

Crawford had been accused of going into the shop and bringing his vehicle off a hydraulic lift, but in the process damaging the shop’s machine, according to the report at the time

Crawford, who turns 29 later this month, is 29-0 with 20 KOs. He held a world title at lightweight in 2014 before moving up to 140 pounds last year and capturing a belt there, then made two defenses before unifying titles — and restarting the championship lineage — with a wide decision this past July over Viktor Postol.

Sh*t happens...Dumb actions by Crawford but just a misdemeanor. He will be fine. But the disappointing thing was that he stopped granting interviews to those who reported on the incident.....when it turns out he was guilty.
