The Benton County Sheriff's Office on Monday arrested former Oregon State football player Jordan Pace on four charges, including rape.

According to a secret indictment filed to Benton County Circuit Court on Nov. 8, a grand jury accused Pace, 19, of first degree rape, first degree unlawful sexual penetration, first degree sodomy and second degree sexual assault. All four charges are felonies and would carry a maximum 65-year prison sentence if convicted.

Pace was arraigned Monday and pleaded not guilty to all four charges.

"He categorically denies the allegations and we expect to put on a full defense going forward," said Nicolas Ortiz, the attorney representing Pace. "He's been cooperating with law enforcement - has from the very beginning - and is also cooperating with the school, OSU, since the allegations came out.

The charges relate to an alleged incident on or about May 14, 2017, according to court documents.

According to an OSU athletic department spokesman, the department's compliance office said Pace was no longer active as of June 6 and was removed from the roster.

Pace, a native of Anchorage, Alaska, joined the Oregon State football team as a walk-on in September 2016 and used his redshirt last season. He started his career as a defensive back but moved to running back by spring practice and earned reps during a scrimmage and the spring game on March 18.

The OSU registrar's office on Tuesday said Pace is an active student.
