DePaulo pushed for $10,000 cash bail, but Abany set it at $2,000 and scheduled a Dec. 21 date to continue the case.

Drago covered his face with his hands and shook his head during most of the arraignment.

Drago’s court-appointed lawyer, David Stuehr, said his client has a minor criminal record, including three cases that were dismissed and a run-in with the Massachusetts Fisheries and Wildlife Department in 1996. Stuehr said Drago has lived in the area his entire life and that he is a sheet metal worker at Raytheon in Andover.

Drago faces up to two and a half years in jail if convicted in district court, but prosecutors said the case could be moved to superior court, where he would face a maximum penalty of five years in state prison.
