He did what?

He pleaded not guilty through his lawyer, Saam Zangeneh, who lashed out at prosecutors. He said he twice reached out to the “intake” prosecutor to discuss why the case should not be filed and never heard back.

“In my 20 years of practice, I have never seen such a miscarriage of justice,” Zangeneh said. “Even when you take the facts that they allege as true, this doesn’t rise to the threshold of probable cause for a crime.“

Third-degree felonies are punishable by up to five years in prison although Rodriguez probably won't get that as he doesn't have a criminal record.
