A 45-year-old Norwich man pleaded not guilty to repeatedly sexually assaulting a young girl in 2010 during his first appearance Monday in the New London court where major crimes are tried.
Brian K. Reynolds of 5 Kilmer Ave. had posted a $100,000 bond following his July 25 arrest by Norwich Police. He is charged with two counts of first-degree sexual assault, two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, police began investigating in April after a school social worker called the Depatment of Children and Families abuse hotline to report that a teenager had disclosed she was sexually abused by Reynolds, whom she knew, several times in 2010. The girl told police Reynolds had assaulted her more than 10 times and that he stopped when she refused his advances.
Confronted by police, Reynolds denied the allegations and refused a request that he take a polygraph exam.
Reynolds is due back in court on Sept. 16. He is represented by M. Fred DeCaprio from the public defender’s office. Senior Assistant State’s attorney Theresa M. Ferryman is prosecuting.
