LOWELL (CBS) – A man charged in connection with a sexual assault in Lowell last week pleaded not guilty to the charges Thursday.

Andrew Burke attorney calls it a case of misidentification, even though prosecutors say the 21-year-old’s cell phone was found at the scene and the victim was able to identify him.
