Sentencing before Chief United States District Court Judge Linda R. Reade will be set after a presentence report is prepared. Boykin was taken into custody by the United States Marshal after the verdict was returned and will remain in custody pending sentencing. Boykin faces a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment, a $500,000 fine, $100 in special assessments, and 5 years of supervised release following any imprisonment.
