PITTSFIELD — An Adams man is being held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing next week after being accused of sexually assaulting two women.

Joshua O. Enright, 30, whose address is listed as unknown in Adams, appeared Thursday in Central Berkshire District Court and entered not guilty pleas to two counts each of rape and providing liquor to a person under 21.

Enright is accused of providing alcohol to two women on Jan. 19 and then assaulting them. Further details of the allegations are unavailable due to records in the case being sealed.

A warrant was issued for Enright's arrest Wednesday. He was taken into custody on that warrant the same day and appeared Thursday for arraignment before Judge Paul Smyth.

At next Tuesday's hearing, Enright faces the prospect of being held as dangerous for 120 days without the right to bail.

If ultimately convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison on each of the rape counts.

Enright is represented by attorney Joseph Zlatnik. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant Berkshire District Attorney Richard Dohoney.
