MONROE - A Belleville man had a not-guilty plea entered on his behalf for multiple felony charges of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl. Matthew G. Tweed, 35, is charged with four Class C felony counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child and three Class D felony counts of child enticement to sexual acts. Tweed chose to waive his right to a preliminary hearing on Wednesday in Green County Circuit Court, negating the need for Assistant District Attorney Jeffrey Kohl to bring forth witnesses to argue there was probable cause to charge Tweed with the felonies.
