Somerville teen denies sports camp sexual assault

Posted: Updated:

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) -- A Somerville teenager charged with using a broomstick to sexually assault a fellow student at a sports camp in Otis pleaded not guilty at his Superior Court arraignment.

Galileo Mondol pleaded not guilty Thursday 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, which the school had rented for a preseason team building camp.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that Mondol's lawyer refused comment after Thursday's proceedings. Another defense lawyer previously said evidence against the teen is thin.
