PHOENIX (AP) - An Avondale teacher accused of filming his sexual assault of two underage students has pleaded not guilty.

Werner Alcid Girard entered the plea in Maricopa County Superior Court stemming from a dozen counts related to sexual conduct with a minor, sexual assault, voyeurism and unlawful viewing of a tape or recording of a person.

Authorities say police received a report May 26 that Girard had cellphone videos depicting a 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old girl in various states of undress.

The victims, who both were in his class, say they were at Girard’s home and he sexually assaulted them in his bedroom.

Girard is next scheduled to appear back in court Aug. 7.
