A Boulder man pleaded not guilty on Friday to two felony sexual assault charges and will face a jury trial in August.
Edgar Ramirez-Martinez, 24, is charged with sexual assault-victim physically helpless and sexual assault-victim incapable of appraising the nature of the victim's conduct.
Ramirez-Martinez is set for a five-day jury trial starting Aug. 26.
He is accused of raping a woman in her car behind a bar in downtown Longmont in April.
According to an arrest affidavit, the victim told Longmont police that she and coworkers went to a bar on Main Street for a goodbye party for Ramirez-Martinez.
The victim didn't think that she had more than two drinks, but she began to black out and get sick during the party. She was in a bathroom, and then she in the back seat of her car. She told police that she doesn't remember how she got there, but that Ramirez-Martinez was there with her at the car.
According to the affidavit, she told police that he pulled her pants down and raped her. She said she felt that she couldn't move or say no, and then she began to vomit.
