Backup defensive lineman Jaryd Rudolph was released on his own recognizance Wednesday after pleading not guilty to violating the state's wiretap statute.
Attorney Mitchell Garabedian, who represents a female Boston College graduate student, said neither his client nor her partner -- another BC player -- knew of a Feb. 15 cell phone recording. He said she learned about it after Rudolph distributed it and she was mocked by other students.
Rudolph's attorney, John Seed, said his client is innocent and there's a question of whether the recording even exists.
Boston College said 19-year-old Rudolph is on probation and suspended from the team.
