AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- The man accused in a rape on Paine College's campus has pleaded not guilty.

Jarius Dantzler pleaded not guilty Friday morning to all charges. The rape charge was from an incident that happened earlier this year in a dorm bathroom at Paine College. Deputies arrested him in March.

Earlier this month, a different grand jury indicted Dantzler for two more crimes. He's also facing armed robbery, cruelty to children and burglary.
