A man charged with molesting a minor pleaded not guilty Wednesday, sending his case to a November trial.

Michael T. Fosseneuve appeared by video in front of a judge in Prince Albert’s provincial court. He had a small team of counsel representing him: a legal aid lawyer handling his impaired driving matter and a private lawyer defending him on a charge of sexual interference.

Sexual interference is the legal term for sexual touching of a child under 16.

The private lawyer, Mary McAuley, said Fosseneuve is pleading not guilty to that charge. She set his trial date for November 22 at Saskatchewan Provincial Court in Prince Albert.

Fosseneuve is also facing separate charges for sexual assault and failing to appear in court. His remaining matters were adjourned to Friday for a bail hearing. Until then, he remains in custody.
