A Casper man is denying he had a sexual relationship with a teenager.
Twenty-six-year old Fernando Lopez has pleaded not guilty to two charges of second degree sexual assault of a minor, and one count of distribution of a controlled substance to a minor.
The victim told police she had met Lopez in June, and then met several times in July and eventually had sex at one of the city parks.

Lopez is being held on fifty-thousand dollars bond awaiting trial, and could receive up to twenty years in prison if convicted.
