Local man pleads not guilty in sexual assault case

A former Rochelle man pled not guilty in Ogle County court on Wednesday after being arrested on 3 counts of the felony offense of aggravated criminal sexual assault.

22-year old Cruz Lara was arrested on a warrant earlier this month in North Carolina.

The alleged incident took place in January of this year. Authorities say that Lara knew the victim, a 16-year old girl.

Local police 1st received word of the alleged incident on August 25th.

In court yesterday, probable cause was found in the case as Lara demanded a jury trial. He returns to court on December 9th for a pre-trial conference.

Lara remains in jail in lieu of a $50,000 bond.
