The Roseburg man accused of sexually abusing two female relatives under 12-years-old pleaded not guilty in Douglas County Circuit Court Monday.
Stephen John Jones, 35, was charged with four counts of first-degree sex abuse, two counts of first-degree sodomy and incest.
Police initially began investigating Jones on May 21 when a relative reported that an 11-year-old girl had accused Jones of touching her inappropriately.
According to court documents, Jones admitted to touching the girls in electronic messages.
During a forensic interview, one of the girls said the abuse happened in January or February.
His trial is set for Dec. 18.
