Prosecutors Drop Attempted Rape Charge Against Former BU Hockey Player

BOSTON (CBS) – Prosecutors have dropped the most serious of charges against a Boston University hockey player accused of sexual assault.

Citing a lack of evidence, the court has decided not to prosecute Corey Trivino on the charge of assault with intent to commit rape. That charge could have carried up to 20 years in prison.

“The evidence as it stands was not sufficient to pursue that particular count,” says Jake Wark, a spokesperson for the Suffolk County district attorney.

Trivino still faces indecent assault and breaking and entering charges.

Trivino was accused of forcing his way into another BU student’s room where he groped, tried to kiss her and even laid on her bed.

He was kicked off of the hockey team and the school said it was conducting its own investigation.

    Of course the worst of the charges were dropped, He’s a jock at BU. I anticipate the same happening with the Football player and the audio cell phone incident. It’s part of the culture of college sports.

    No Ginny, Its a prosecutor realizing he didn’t have enough evidence..

    Bottom line is, the guy is a TOOL and now everyone knows it. I hope this haunts him for the rest of his pathetic life.

    The fact that he still faces indecent assault and breaking and entering charges shows the type of person he is. He probably thinks he is above the law.

    I do feel badly for the girl. :(

    to bad we don’t know the truth unless we were there! It’s sad to say but there are many girls out there that if they don’t get what they want don’t have a problem making faulse accusations. I unfortunately know someone that went through this and he didn’t cave under the pressure – when it was finally time to go to court – she was a no show because she knew she was a big fat liar!

    I know I know… they all aren’t – but the media has no problem splashing these kids faces on the news like the they are real news.

    Now if we could get them to do some real journalism like looking into the corruption in some of these small towns. Over the last year I’ve read about Templeton, MA they even had a story about the FBI being called in because of some crazy guy making threats – but did we see any of that on the news? NOOOOOO…

    Is the pig that leveled these false charges going to be identified now? Will she be charged? Will she apologize?
