A 28-year-old Waltham man pleaded not guilty in Edgartown District Court to one count of rape. Micah Washington was arrested by Edgartown Police in Oak Bluffs on Tuesday, Nov. 27, for an offense that allegedly took place on Nov. 14, according to court records.

The details of the allegations were redacted from a police report because it involves an allegation of sexual assault.

Washington came before Judge Thomas Kirkman on Nov. 29, and was released after posting a $500 bond. He is due back in court on Jan. 7 for a probable cause hearing. Washington’s court-appointed attorney, Ryan Elizabeth Searle, could not immediately be reached for comment.
