A man charged with drugging and raping at least two women he met on MySpace pleaded not guilty to three counts of rape. He is charged with two counts of using drugs to commit rape and one count of forcible rape with a sentencing enhancement for sex crimes against multiple victims. Court records allege that the man met an 18-year-old woman on MySpace and contacted her by phone and e-mail, invited her to a party and then raped her in a bathroom at the party after incapacitating her with a drug. He is also accused of raping a 22-year-old woman in a hotel after meeting her on the website and giving her a date-rape drug. The woman alleges she woke up the following day with a cracked tooth and scraped face. He faces a maximum sentence of 45 years to life in prison.
