Not guilty pleas were entered by a man accused of two sexual assaults on a woman.
David Ashton of Woolsthorpe Road, Woolsthorpe by Colsterworth, is accused of committing the offences in August of last year in Colsterworth.
Magistrates declined jurisdiction after the prosecution argued the charges were too serious.
Ashton, 26, will next appear in court on May 7 for committal to crown court.
Ashton was given bail on the condition he does not contact five named people.
