Seventeen-year-old Galileo Mondol of Somerville appeared at a hearing Friday in Pittsfield where a judge said he isn't a public danger. The judge also set release conditions including a curfew, GPS monitoring and avoiding alleged victims and witnesses.

Prosecutors say Mondol is 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 names of the others are not public because they are 16.

Prosecutors say they raped one freshman with a broom and tried to rape two others.

Mondol has pleaded not guilty. His lawyer says he had nothing to do with the alleged assault.
