BOSTON — Bryon Hefner, the estranged husband of former State Senate President Stanley Rosenberg, pleaded not guilty to sexual assault and other charges at his first court appearance in Suffolk Superior Court Tuesday morning.
Hefner, 30, allegedly sexually assaulted four male victims, three of which happened in the last five years according to a joint press release from the offices of Attorney General Maura Healey and Suffolk District Attorney Dan Conley. He faces charges of sexual assault, distributing nude photos without consent and criminal lewdness.
A judge released Hefner on his recognizance. He was ordered to stay away from the alleged victims and the Massachusetts State House.
Hefner’s trial is scheduled for next March.
