According to court documents, former Northern Illinois defensive lineman Frank Boenzi faces charges of two Class A misdemeanors after being charged with possessing 10-30 grams of cannabis and attempting to manufacture or deliver 10-30 grams of cannabis in DeKalb County on June 11. NIU spokeswoman Donna Turner confirmed Thursday that Boenzi was dismissed from the Huskies for a violation of team rules. NIU released this statement from coach Dave Doeren: “Frank Boenzi is no longer a member of the Northern Illinois football team due to a violation of team policy. There are certain expectations and standards of conduct that we set for student-athletes in our program, and unfortunately, Frank did not meet those expectations. We wish him the very best in the future.” Boenzi, a Geneva graduate, has a plea setting set for 9 a.m. on July 20. A Class A misdemeanor is punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,500. Shaw Media was unable to contact Boenzi for comment.
