Boston University’s hockey defenseman Max Nicastro was arraigned in Brighton District Court on Tuesday, after being arrested for sexual assault charges. The alleged abuse is said to have taken place on campus and is being held on $25,000 bail. Nicastro pled not guilty and his bail was reduced to $10,000.
Nicastro is not the first BU hockey player to be arrested this season for sexual assault charges.
Corey Trivino was arrested back in December and charged with three counts of indecent assault and battery. Trivino was also charged with one count of attempted rape and two counts of breaking and entering.
Trivino was arrested by Boston University Police around 11 p.m. after he allegedly pushed his way into the room of a female student while intoxicated and started groping her against her will.
Trivino also pled not guilty to the charges and is due to appear back in court on March 22.
Both Nicastro and Trivino have been removed from the team.
