A Grantham man accused of two counts of rape of an under-16 was told his case will be heard at the crown court.
Stephen Maskell, of East Street in Grantham, is also accused of five charges of indecent assault against a girl under the age of 14.
All seven charges date back to the early 1990s.
No plea to the charges has yet been entered.
Maskell, 49, will next appear in court on April 8 at Lincoln Crown Court. He was bailed on the condition he does not contact the alleged victim or have any unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 16.
