On Monday, four teenagers pleaded not guilty to charges that they raped a University Of Massachusetts student in her dorm room.
According to CBS, police say that the teenagers were signed into the dorm by someone else on Saturday October 13. Police also said that the teens do not go to Umass, but the victim knows them.
According to New York Daily, the teens Adam Licciardi, 18, Caleb Womack, 17, Justin King, 18, and Emmanuel Bile, 18, of Pittsfield Mass, allegedly took advantage of the woman as she slipped in and out of consciousness.
According to Boston, the defendants' bails were set at $10,000 each, and the judge ordered them to wear GPS tracking.
On Monday, a prosecutor said that the defendatns texted the woman and they told her that she wanted to come over but she told them no. The prosecutor went on to say that the defendants decided to show up anyway and once someone signed them in, went up to her room where she agreed to spend some time with them.
Authorities say that the five were drinking alcohol and the woman smoked marijuana. The prosecutor said that the attack started after one of the defendants got up and turned off the light while another defendant started to take off the woman's clothes.
Lawyers for the defendants say that the next day the victim and one of the defendants exchanged a text message in which she told him that she would go to the police if they did not give her money.
However, the prosecutor said that the victim only said that because it was a tactic to trick the defendants into thinking she would not report the incident to police.
Umass Amerst police Chief, John Horvath, said that the woman reported the rape on October 14, at 11:30 p.m.
Horvath said that there was no damage to the victim's dorm room door no were there any signs of a struggle in her room.
