LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -- A La Crosse man accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old appeared in court Tuesday.

Steven Meyer, 28, is charged with two counts of child enticement and one count of sex with a child. An investigator with the police department took the stand and showed alleged text messages between Meyer and the teen.

The girl, who knew Meyer before the incident, told investigators he gave her alcohol and marijuana before having sex with her in the back room of a store while she was intoxicated. She later told her parents about the alleged encounter.

Meyer pleaded not guilty to a charge of sex with a child age 16 or older and one charge of child enticement. He objected to a second count of child enticement.

He is expected in court again in June.
