BU basketball students plead not guilty
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- Two Binghamton University basketball players that were suspended from the team, pleaded not guilty in court on Wednesday. Javon Ralling, a senior, and Jordan Reed, a freshman, were arrested on October 7 outside of the bar in the city of Binghamton.
Ralling pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He will appear in court at a later date. Reed also pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct, and was given an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal. He will serve 20 hours of community service and must stay out of trouble.
The two student-athletes were kicked off the team indefinitely for violating the school's code of conduct. Once all legal proceedings are finished, they can request reinstatement to the men's basketball team.
