Douglas Quentin of Chisamba is also charged with being in possession of obscene pictures that allegedly have the potential to corrupt morals.
When the matter came up, the suspect pleaded not guilty to the two counts.
He took a plea before Lusaka Magistrate Lameck Mwale.
Earlier, the state discontinued the matter for the victim who was jointly charged with Mr. Quentin.
Magistrate Mwale asked the minor to leave the accused’s dock after the State entered a Nolle prosequi in the matter.
The case has been adjourned to November 5, 2019.
