Hakop Jack Kaplanyan, a 19-year-old from Glendale, pleaded not guilty after a grand jury indictment was unsealed Monday morning, the DA’s office said in a news release.

He was suspended by UCLA in April after having been initially arrested on suspicion of rape after an acquaintance said he had raped her in a dorm on campus.
