A Fort Collins priest accused of sexually molesting a minor pleaded not guilty in Larimer County Court today.
Timothy Joseph Evans, 43, pleaded not guilty to four charges stemming from incidents alleged to have happened with a teenager during Evans' tenure at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, 5450 S. Lemay Ave., where he served from 1998 to 2002.
The counts include two counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, one count of sexual assault on a child – pattern abuse and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Judge Jolene Blair set Evans' Larimer County trial to begin March 19.
Evans also faces charges in Jefferson County of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, pattern abuse, from an incident alleged to have happened during his time at Spirit of Christ Parish in Arvada from May 1995 to May 1997.
Evans' Jefferson County trial is set for April 2. He remains free on $100,000 bond.
