A massage therapist accused of sexually assaulting a woman during a massage session at her home in Santa Clarita will find out next month the date a judge will determine if there is enough evidence to require him to stand trial.
Daniel Holbert, 48, of Burbank, is charged with one count of sexual penetration by a foreign object by fraudulent representation stemming from the alleged March 12 assault.
Holbert pleaded not guilty to a felony charge Wednesday, and he’ll return to court Nov. 30 to learn the date by which a judge will decide if he should be tried.
Holbert — who works out of a North Hollywood gym — was arrested Aug. 23 and released the same day on a $100,000 bond.
If convicted as charged, Holbert faces up to three years in prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
