Guam - Edison Santos, the man accused of raping a 27-year-old hearing impaired woman pleaded not guilty in court today.

Although his attorney Howard Trapp requested Santos be released, he was denied because probation deemed two of the three third party custodians inappropriate as they may be possible witnesses.

Through a certified sign language interpreter, the victim alleges Santos raped her three times and that she was scared to say anything because she feared the defendant.

When interviewed by police, Santos reported the two were in a consensual relationship.

Santos' next court appearance is a criminal trial setting on February 24.
