A 32-year-old Suffolk man will face trial later this year after denying child sex offences.
Ross Smith appeared at Ipswich Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on Tuesday.
Smith has been charged with two counts of causing a girl under the age of 13 to engage in sexual activity and two counts of sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 13 by touching.
He entered not guilty pleas to all for offences, which are alleged to have taken place in a 12-month between 2018 and 2019.
Smith, of Banham Road, Beccles, will face trial at Ipswich Crown Court in November.
