PITTSFIELD, Mass. – A Somerville teenager arrested under sexual assault charges was back in Central Berkshire District Court Friday for a dangerousness hearing on Friday.
The judge granted 17-year-old Galileo Mondol bail at $100,000 cash or $1 million bond. There are also conditions the judge set up if the teen were to post bail or bond. The judge ruled that Mondol would have to withdraw from Somerville High School, where he would be a junior this year. He would also have to surrender his passport, observe an 11 p.m. curfew, and have no contact with victims or witnesses in the case.
Mondol was arrested Friday, August 30th after the alleged assault at Camp Lenox in Otis, Mass. where the City of Somerville had rented the facility for team-building activities for fall sports teams.
The Somerville High School junior pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated rape of a child, two counts of assault with intent to rape a child, three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and three counts of intimidation of a witness Tuesday.
According to the prosecution, Mondol and two other male teens allegedly entered a cabin occupied by freshman students on Sunday, August 25th and assaulted three boys who were a part of the Somerville High School soccer team. Berkshire Assistant District Attorney Rachel Eramo said two of the victims were able to fight off the assault while the third victim was assaulted with an object.
Under Massachusetts law, a 17-year-old is considered an adult and automatically charged as one. The two 16-year-old boys, whose names were not released because of their age, were to be arraigned in juvenile court on similar charges.
