Another Defendant Charged in UMass Rape Case Has Bail Lowered

Northampton, Mass. (WGGB) — A second defendant charged with raping a UMass Amherst student in the early morning hours of Saturday, Oct. 13 has had his bail reduced.

That’s according to the Hampshire Superior Court Clerk’s Office.

18 year-old, Adam Liccardi was granted a reduced bail Monday from $10,000 to $2,500 cash or $25,000 surety.

Should Liccardi post bail, he will be required to meet twice weekly with a probation officer in Pittsfield, observe an 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. curfew at his parents’ house and wear a GPS monitor, when one becomes available, among other conditions.

Liccardi is the second defendant in this case to have a lowered bail.  On October 30, 18 year-old, Emmanuel Bile received a reduced bail of $3,500.

Originally, all four defendants had bail set at $10,000 along with conditions.

On October 22, Liccardi, Bile, 17 year-old Caleb Womack, and 18 year-old Justin King, all of Pittsfield, pleaded not guilty to three counts of rape, each in Eastern Hampshire District Court.  At that time, Liccardi also pled not guilty to an additional charge of rape.

All four are due back in court on December 10.
