A BBC journalist has denied a series of sex charges including rape when he appeared before Londonderry Crown Court.
Sean O'Halloran, 29, from Northland Road in Derry is accused of raping a woman in May 2014.
The defendant who is a journalist with BBC Radio Foyle faces two additional charges of sexual assault on the same date.
He replied "definitely not guilty" when all three charges were put to him.
A date for his trial - which is expected to last up to five days - has yet to be confirmed.
