Boxer Ortiz Pleads Not Guilty To Oxnard Rape

Wednesday October 10, 2018

     Boxing champ and former Dancing with the Stars contestant Victor Ortiz was in a Ventura courtroom Wednesday to face sexual assault allegations.

   The 31-year-old Ortiz of Tarzana is accused of raping a woman in Oxnard in March of this year.

   He entered not guilty pleas to three felony counts.

   Ortiz remains free on $100,000 bail and is due back in court on December 3rd for what's known as an early disposition conference that is held before a preliminary hearing.

   His defense attorney Mark Pachowicz told KVTA News he expects the case will have to be resolved at trial.

   Ortiz surrendered last month after the DA's office issued an arrest warrant following a lengthy investigation.
