In Massachusetts, unlike most states where a misdemeanor might carry a maximum of one year in jail, the penalty can be as severe as two and a half years. However, whether Lucic will face jail time depends on the court's ruling if he is found guilty.

Details of Charges Against Bruins' Lucic Disclosed

The incident that led to these charges involved Lucic's wife, who called 9-1-1 early Saturday morning, claiming that Lucic had attacked and choked her. Police reports indicate that Lucic seemed intoxicated when officers responded to the call. Lucic has since taken an indefinite leave from the Bruins. His future in professional hockey hangs in the balance, pending the outcome of the legal proceedings.
