A 21-year-old Spokane man pleaded not guilty today to second-degree rape of a woman who said she was sexually assaulted at a party.

Here's Thomas Clouse's report:

"Anthony J. Wilson appeared before Superior Court Judge Ellen Kalama Clark, who ordered a sexual assault protection order against Wilson as he awaits trial, which is currently set for Oct, 26.

The alleged victim told police that she attended a party on Oct. 10 , 2008, in the 12200 block of East First Avenue.

After the encounter, she completed a rape kit at a hospital but did not immediately call law enforcement.

She called deputies a month later when she saw Wilson at a bar. During an interview with detectives, Wilson admitting having sex with a woman when she was unconscious but he couldn’t remember what happened, according to court records.

The rape charge was filed after a DNA sample was taken."
