BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut judge has allowed a University of Bridgeport soccer player accused of rape to go free after dropping his $50,000 bail to a promise to appear in court.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/1F4AdMs ) that Bridgeport Superior Court Judge Robin Pavia eliminated bail for 18-year-old Luis Campozano of the Bronx, New York, on Friday, despite objections by prosecutors. The judge cited Campozano’s young age, his family support and lack of a criminal record.

Pavia ordered Campozano to undergo mental health treatment and stay away from the alleged victim. His case was continued to May 29.

Campozano was charged with first-degree sexual assault Friday for allegedly sodomizing a female student at an off-campus party.

Campozano’s response to the allegations isn’t clear. A phone listing for him couldn’t be found.
