A Mitchell man pleaded not guilty Tuesday to fourth-degree rape.

Kristopher Patrick Aslesen, 30, was indicted by a Davison County grand jury in March for allegedly committing a sexual act with a victim who was at least 13 years old but less than 16 years old. He appeared in court Tuesday at the Davison County Public Safety Center in Mitchell.

Fourth-degree rape is a felony with a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.

Aslesen is scheduled to stand trial in May.
