CHARLES CITY – A Charles City man that was arrested on March 11 and charged with two counts of sexual abuse has pleaded not guilty.

Floyd county prosecutor Normand Klemesrud filed two charges of felony C sexual abuse in the third degree against 49-year-old Kenford Simon on March 10. The alleged dates of the sexual assaults were listed as April 17, 2013 and May 1, 2013 against a teenage female.

On April 4, Simon’s attorney, former Floyd county prosector Jesse Marzen, filed a not guilty plea. On April 7, a jury trial date of June 6 was set. A May 19 pre-trial conference was also set.

A no-contact order was placed by a judge between Simon and the un-named accuser.

Sexual abuse in the third degree is a class C felony in Iowa. The act is done by force or against the will of the other person, whether or not the other person is the person’s spouse or is cohabiting with the person. The charge is punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment and a potential fine up to $10,000.
