Scott A. Kopper, 36, of Batavia, entered a not guilty plea today on a four-count indictment that includes an accusation that he assaulted a Sheriff's deputy.

Kopper remains in custody and his next scheduled court appearance is July 8.

Judge Robert C. Noonan also signed three orders of protection, including one for Deputy Brian Thompson, the deputy Kopper is accused of dragging with his car Jan. 7.

Thompson is currently assigned to courthouse duty and Noonan noted that one of the orders involved Thompson and said the only way the order could be fair is if it allowed incidental contact between Thompson and Kopper while Thompson is on duty, barring any offensive conduct by Kopper.

Kopper is facing counts of assault, 1st, reckless endangerment, and two counts of assault, 2nd.
