Brian Stowe

The lawyer for a Madison man accused of drugging, assaulting and videotaping women has entered not-guilty pleas on his client’s behalf.

Pleas were entered Monday on behalf of 28-year-old Brian C. Stowe. He’s due back in court Sept. 5.

Stowe faces 62 charges. They include 33 counts of second-degree sexual assault, 27 counts of capturing an image of nudity without consent and two counts of possessing a recording of nudity without consent.

The criminal complaint said he sexually assaulted and photographed unconscious women. Prosecutors say most of the victims were his co-workers at Epic in Verona.

Stowe also faces a federal charge of using a 17-year-old girl to produce child pornography.
