    Man denies guilt in

    sex assault charge

    A Rutland man faced with a potential lifetime jail sentence for a sex assault in the city denied the charge in Rutland criminal court Monday.

    Paul A. Jordan, 31, pleaded innocent to a felony count of sexual assault no consent, which carries a minimum three-year jail sentence and a maximum punishment of life.

    He was jailed on $7,500 bail, but Judge Nancy Corsones allowed Jordan to post 10 percent of that amount to be released. He had not posted bail as of early Monday evening.

    Jordan was arrested Saturday after a woman told city police that Jordan sexually assaulted her after she had spent the night drinking at a downtown bar.

    The woman told police that Jordan helped her walk back to his apartment and then sexually assaulted her.
