A Wagga policeman and Group Nine footballer accused of using his position to illegally access computer records has pleaded not guilty.
Brayden Sharrock, 30, has been charged with two counts of accessing or modifying restricted data held in a computer.
Police allege Mr Sharrock first made the illegal access in September 2017 and, following months of inquiries, he was officially charged on May 8 this year.
The footballer did not front court on Wednesday, but his lawyer, David Barron, formally entered pleas of not guilty on his behalf.
Mr Sharrock will return to Wagga Local Court on January 17 next year for a hearing that is expected to take up a whole day.
The court heard the crown’s case will be based on a large number of computer records as well as a computer expert who will be called as an expert witness.
Mr Sharrock played as a first grade prop with Brothers Wagga since 2011 and was also selected for the Australian Police Team in 2014.
