Canton: Stoughton man pleads not guilty in fatal car crash

(AP) – A 24-year-old Stoughton man has pleaded not guilty to charges including drunken driving motor vehicle homicide after a weekend crash that killed a Curry College student riding in his car.

Sean Jackman, who was injured, was arraigned Monday at Boston Medical Center. A judge ordered him held on $500,000 cash bail.

Twenty-year-old Evan Bard of Agawam was killed in the crash just before midnight on Friday night. Police said the car apparently struck a tree on Bolivar Street in Canton.

The next hearing is scheduled for June 10 in Stoughton District Court.

Suffolk County prosecutors are handling the case since Jackman is a former intern with the Norfolk District Attorney’s office, where a relative also worked.
