Rosum is accused of raping a woman when she did not consent, or he did not reasonably believe she was consenting.

Wearing a black suit and blue tie, Rosum pleaded not guilty to the offence from the dock.

His trial date has now been set to take place at the same court on June 30 next year with a time estimate of four days.
