MOSCOW, Idaho  -- A 20-year-old southern Idaho man has pleaded not guilty to a felony rape charge in connection with an assault at the University of Idaho.

Prosecutors say Jesse M. Vierstra, a former UI student, raped an 18-year-old freshman while he was visiting the school for homecoming.

The Lewiston Tribune reports Vierstra pleaded not guilty in Latah County's 2nd District Court on Wednesday.

He's scheduled to stand trial in January.
