As BoxingScene.com reported last month, former welterweight world champion Victor Ortiz was arrested on suspicion of rape in Oxnard, California.
Ortiz turned himself in after authorities filed a felony complaint against him alleging rape during a March 19 incident in which a woman told Oxnard police she was sexually assaulted inside a house.
Earlier today, Ortiz appeared in Ventura County Superior Court to be arraigned on multiple charges related to the incident.
The arrest came several days before a planned fight with John Molina, which was scheduled to headline a Premier Boxing Champions card in Ontario, California, and televised by Fox Sports 1.
The fight was called off.
According to TMZ Sports, Ortiz pled not guilty to 3 felony sexual assault charges- including forcible rape, forcible oral copulation and forcible digital penetration for an alleged incident that went down in an Oxnard, CA home on March 19.
During Wednesday's hearing, the judge revoked Ortiz's probation stemming from a 2016 DUI case -- which means, in theory, he could be thrown in jail for that.
That matter will be addressed at a hearing in December -- when Ortiz is due back in court for his rape case.
Outside the courtroom Wednesday, Ortiz didn't say a single word to reporters -- but laughed and joked with his legal team as he walked to his car.
If convicted on all counts, Ortiz faces at least 3 years in prison -- and possibly MUCH more.
