    Two police officers from New York charged with sexually assaulting a woman in an Atlantic City casino have pleaded not guilty.

    NBC40 reports that 35-year-old Devon Thomas pleaded not guilty and his bail was set at $175,000, while 32-year-old Andrei Torres pleaded not guilty and was released on his own recognizance.

    Thomas is a three-year veteran of the New York State Police and Torres is a seven-year veteran of the New York Police Department.

    The men were charged with aggravated sexual assault and sexual assault by force without injury. Lawyers for both men say their clients are innocent.

    Atlantic County prosecutor Pam D'Arcy says that the 34-year-old female victim was unconscious when the men had sex with her at the Trump Taj Mahal on April 24.

    A criminal complaint obtained by NBC New York alleges that Torres pushed the drunk woman onto a hotel bed before sexually assaulting her.
