Mass. teen pleads not guilty to sports camp rape

Posted: Updated:

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts teenager accused of using a broomstick to rape a fellow student at a sports camp has pleaded not guilty.

Galileo Mondol entered the plea Thursday in state Superior Court to seven charges, including aggravated rape on a person under 16.

The 17-year-old Mondol was allowed to remain free on the $100,000 bail he posted after his district court arraignment, with the same conditions.

Prosecutors say Mondol was one of three Somerville High School soccer players charged in connection with the alleged assault Aug. 25 in a cabin at Camp Lenox in Otis. The school had rented the camp for preseason team-building.

The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/1bXzwW7 ) reports that Mondol's lawyer declined to comment after Thursday's proceedings. Another defense lawyer previously said evidence against the teen is thin.
