McMINNVILLE, Ore. (AP) — A former Linfield College student accused of raping a woman in a college dormitory plans to take his case to trial.

The Yamhill Valley News-Register reports 20-year-old Diego Garcia has pleaded not guilty to charges of rape and sexual abuse. A two-week trial has been scheduled to start July 7.

The man was expelled from the McMinnville-based college after last year’s arrest and a judge allowed him to return home to California until trial.
