A man from Sidney accused of raping a 4-year-old girl he was babysitting has plead not guilty to the charges.

Police say Eric Bard, 23, recorded the attack with his cell phone.

He was arrested in July 2012 after police reportedly found a memory card at his home with images of abuse.

The District Attorney’s Office says Bard has also been deemed competent to stand trial. A judge had wanted him evaluated before he entered a plea.
