Man Pleads Not Guilty to 2014 Sexual Assault



    Checklist for a Healthier Fall

    A Vermont man has pleaded not guilty to charges he sexually assaulted a 53-year-old woman last year.

    The Caledonian Record reports
    a judge ordered 32-year-old Japheth Medley held without bail in an Orleans court. He is charged with sexual assault without consent.

    Police say they began investigating after a Newport City woman reported that she'd been raped on Oct. 15, 2014.

    Police said she told them she was assaulted by the North Troy man at a friend's house after they had been drinking.

    Medley, who has a criminal record, is facing at least three years in prison and up to a life sentence if he's convicted.
