SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A San Jose police officer accused of raping a woman while on duty has pleaded not guilty.

The San Jose Mercury News reports (https://bit.ly/1hFClyT) that 38-year-old Geoffrey Graves entered the plea in court on Monday and then left without talking to reporters.

Graves is accused of raping the woman in September after responding to a family disturbance call at her home. Prosecutors say police determined the woman and her husband had been drinking, but no crime had occurred.

Graves allegedly took the woman to a hotel where she wanted to stay for the night. Prosecutors say he later returned to her room and assaulted her.

He was arrested last month. He has been placed on paid administrative leave.
