Trivino Back in Court
Former hockey star’s case continued to March
Former BU hockey star Corey Trivino returned briefly to Brighton District Court on Wednesday, where the case charging him with indecent assault and battery and breaking and entering was continued until March 22. Trivino pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Trivino, who was flanked in court by his parents, was arrested on the night of December 11 for allegedly entering the room of a female student in a BU residence hall several times and kissing and groping her against her will.
Suffolk County assistant district attorney Lawrence Bates requested more time to prepare his case against Trivino (MET’12), who stood silently while his attorney, Conrad Bletzer, spoke with Judge David Donnelly for less than a minute.
Before his December arrest, Trivino was the lead scorer in Hockey East and had been drafted by the New York Islanders. The NHL team released a statement immediately following Trivino’s arrest: “We know of the allegations against Corey, but at this time we do not know every piece of information. Until then, we’ll have no further comment.”
Trivino is not enrolled this semester, according to BU spokesperson Colin Riley, and faces disciplinary action up to expulsion from the University. The Toronto native is currently free on bail and is in Canada with his family.14 Comments
