College Hockey:
Former Boston University player Trivino pleads guilty to Dec. 2011 assault

The Boston Globe has reported that former Boston University forward Corey Trivino has pleaded guilty to drunkenly assaulting a woman in a BU dorm room last December.

Trivino was sentenced Tuesday to two years probation where he must be tested randomly for alcohol use, attend weekly Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, receive a mental health evaluation and have no contact with the victim.

The incident last season led to Trivino being dismissed from the BU team.

In court Tuesday, the victim addressed Trivino.

“This experience has affected every ounce of my being,” she said.

“I’m sorry for everything she had to go through because of me that night,” Trivino added. “I’m really and truly sorry for what happened.”

Trivino is scheduled to attend training camp with the New York Islanders in September.

    While the overall incident was very sad and troubling, I am glad that the victim was able to address the crime and that Corey Trivino decided to plead guilty and apologize in court. Maybe he can also spend some time and energy helping to educate others.

    I don’t believe that drunken assault is an actual criminal charge. Assault and battery is.
