HARTLAND — A Lebanon man is accused of committing sexual crimes against three teenage girls who were at a sleepover at a home in Hartland earlier this year.

Jon Reisinger, 52, pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual assault and one count of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child during an arraignment in Windsor Superior Court on Tuesday. A judge ordered him to be released on a $50,000 bond and have no contact with the teenagers.

The charges stem from an incident on Sept. 25 when the girls were having a sleepover at a house in Hartland. Two of the girls were known to Reisinger, who was visiting the house that night, and a third was a friend of theirs, according to an affidavit written by Vermont State Police. According to police, Reisinger inappropriately touched the three girls while they were trying to sleep.

One of the girls came forward to police hours after the incident, leading to Reisinger’s arrest in November.

Reisinger is scheduled to appear in court for a status conference on Jan. 13.
