Former Boston University Terriers star Corey Trivino pleaded guilty today to assaulting a graduate student in her dorm room last winter but it hasn’t dampened his pro sports prospects as agents say they are shopping his talents to the highest bidder in the National Hockey League.No word as to which team's training camp Trivino expects to attend. But what's very troubling is the situation for the victim involved:
Trivino, 22, of Toronto, Canada, will be on probation for the next two years. For the first 45 days a Brighton District Court judge has ordered that he report to probation weekly by telephone and that random drug and alcohol testing be performed by NHL officials.
Trivino’s attorney Conrad Bletzer told the court today that Trivino, who was drafted as a player prospect in 2008 by the New York Islanders, expects to have an NHL contract and be assigned to a training camp by the end of the month, even if it’s with another team.
His victim, meanwhile, addressed the court today trembling and in tears.
“I think that I see Corey all the time and every time my body reacts in terror,” said the woman who is in twice weekly therapy and on medication for post traumatic stress disorder. “It is impossible to put a price on the pain and suffering that I have experienced. Unfortunately for me, there is no ending because the mind does not forget.”
