Two incoming Clarkson freshman and a recruit face charges of sexual misconduct and child endangerment, both misdemeanors, the Watertown Daily Times reported.
Jordan Ciccarello, 18, entered a not guilty plea Wednesday in Potsdam, N.Y., to the charge of having sexual contact with a 16-year-old girl without her consent during the school’s summer hockey camp in early July, the newspaper reported.
Clarkson freshman Patrick McEachen, 18, and recruit Demetri Sakaris, 19, both appeared in court on the same charges, but their arraignments were adjourned because paperwork from state police had not arrived, the newspaper reported.
The paper also reported that Clarkson coach George Roll was in court for the proceedings.
Ciccarello, of New Hartford, Conn., and McEachen, of Stouffville, Ontario, were expected to play defense for the Golden Knights this season. McEachen originally committed to Maine before changing course.
Sakaris, a forward from Candiac, Quebec, reportedly has verbally committed to Clarkson for the fall of 2011.
