ROSEVILLE, Mich. -- A judge has dismissed one of the criminal sexual conduct cases against former Detroit Lions wide receiver Tommie Boyd.

Boyd was accused of forcing the girl to have sex in 2006 at Fraser High School, where he was a substitute teacher and track coach. The now-19-year-old woman testified they had consensual sex at least six times.

Roseville District Court Judge Marco Santia ruled Wednesday there wasn't enough evidence to support the charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

The 38-year-old Boyd still faces a case involving a now 16-year-old girl who testified he offered her $5,000 to have sex but gave her only $200.

In that case, he's charged with first- and second-degree criminal sexual conduct and accosting a minor for immoral purposes.
