Jason Mindrup appeared in Mower County Court Thursday morning to face two felony sex charges.

The former Brownsdale Chief of Police entered not guilty pleas on both counts after being accused of sexual assault from an alleged incident in late August.

A criminal complaint against Mindrup said he sexually assaulted a woman in his personal vehicle after picking her up as she left a bar in Waltham August 31.

The Brownsdale City Council voted to fire Mindrup from his former job after a Minnesota State BCA investigation found there was enough evidence to charge him with first and third degree criminal sexual conduct.

Mindrup's next scheduled court dates will be in March 2014 for both his pretrial conference and his jury trial.
