A former Eldridge police officer accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old pleaded not guilty and waived his right to a speedy trial in a written arraignment filed Thursday.
According to updated trial information, also filed Thursday, Denoyer is charged with three counts of third-degree sexual abuse. The abuse happened on three occasions and at three locations between Aug. 19, 2020 and Sept. 28, 2021 and each was against a 14- or 15-year-old, according to the trial information.
The original arrest affidavit only cited one instance of sexual abuse against a 14-year-old, which reportedly occurred on May 1, 2021.
Third-degree sexual abuse is a Class C felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of 10 years.
Denoyer posted a $10,000 cash-bond shortly after being arrested.
A no-contact order has been filed against Denoyer. The order is not available to the public because it contains the name of a child.
