UND Smashes Bad Boyz Record For Arrests
Add Joe Finley to the growing list of University of North Dakota hockey players who were arrested last season. No wonder Coach Hakstol called in Chief Packett to address the team last February.
Fighting Sioux hockey player Joe Finley was fined $475 and ordered to perform 20 hours of community service in connection with a November loud party charge. A similar charge against Finley's roommate, Sioux hockey player Kyle Radke, was dismissed.
Meanwhile, Robbie Bina's trial will be held June 29th. Bina is facing a misdemeanor charge of escape from custody. Last July 15th Bina was also arrested for a DUI.
The charge against Bina carries a maximum punishment of a $1,000 fine and 30 days in jail.
In April, Jonathan Toews and T.J. Oshie pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of being a minor not allowed on liquor premises. They were ordered to pay fines or fees but will serve no jail time if they stay out of trouble for the next year.
Toews, who has faced similar charges before, was sentenced to 10 days in jail, which was suspended for one year, meaning he won't serve the time unless he commits another crime, according to Grand Forks municipal prosecutor Kristi Pettit.
He also must serve 30 hours community service, according to court records, and pay a fine of $425 in court fines and fees.
Toews was charged in September with minor in consumption and noisy party gathering. The noisy party gathering charge was dismissed, according to his attorney, Richard Olson.
In early February, UND released a statement in which Bina, Oshie & Toews apologized for the incident. Bina, in the statement, said he took full responsibility for "a mistake that I will not be able to take back."
