Boston University junior defenseman Max Nicastro was arraigned on two counts of rape Tuesday in Brighton District Court and a plea of not guilty was automatically entered on Nicastro’s behalf, according to ESPN.
Judge Franco Gobourne ordered Nicastro held on $10,000 cash bail and issued a no-contact order.
The 21-year-old Nicastro is due back in court on March 26 for a probable cause hearing. Nicastro’s attorney, Hugh Curran, said that Nicastro plans to stay at BU to complete his degree in business administration, including taking classes this summer.
Nicastro had nine points in 26 games for the Terriers this season before being suspended from the team pending the result of the police investigation.
