VAIL, Colo. (AP) - A former Eagle County sheriff’s deputy has pleaded not guilty to charges of sexually assaulting a Gypsum woman.

The Vail Daily reports (https://tinyurl.com/n3rthrs ) 42-year-old Timothy Joseph Hay entered his plea Wednesday.

His trial is scheduled for March 23. If convicted, he could be sentenced to 4 years to life in prison.

He’s free on $15,000 bond.

A woman told investigators she was driving Hay home after they had drinks at a bar on Sept. 18 when he asked her to stop at a warehouse. Hay is accused of slamming her head to the ground and sexually assaulting her.



Hay joined the sheriff’s department in 2003. He was on the force but off duty at the time of the alleged assault.

It wasn’t immediately clear when he left the department.
