The three remaining men who allegedly gang raped a University of Massachusetts freshman in her dorm room in 2012 will not go to trial until June at the earliest, Masslive.com reported Wednesday.

Justin King, 21, and Adam Liccardi, 20, both of Pittsfield and Caleb Womack, 20, of Windsor Locks, Connecticut, are each charged with three counts of aggravated rape. Liccardi faces a fourth count for allegedly raping the victim again after the others had left.

Emmanuel T. Bile Jr., the first of the four men to be tried, was found guilty of two counts of aggravated rape and sentenced to eight to 10 years in state prison last week.

Prosecutors allege the men entered the then 18-year-old woman’s room in Pierpont Hall and gang-raped her while she was too intoxicated to consent.

According to Masslive.com, the trials were delayed for months due to scheduling conflicts and the wait time for DNA test results.

Alfred Chamberland, Liccardi’s attorney, moved for a change of venue due to the amount of publicity the Bile trial received, Masslive.com reported.
