A former Hopkinsville police officer facing sexual abuse charges has pleaded not guilty.
The Kentucky New Era reported 32-year-old Ian L. Damber entered a plea of not guilty Wednesday to five counts of first-degree sexual assault.
Damber was arrested in August after police investigated a complaint alleging he inappropriately touched a minor on five separate occasions.
Police said Damber was suspended because of the charges and later resigned. He had been an officer with the department since 2013.
Damber has currently been out on bail and has been scheduled to appear in court again November 30.
