BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) _ A convicted sex offender has pleaded not guilty to allegations that he sexually a 6-year-old girl in southeast Nebraska.

49-year-old Harold Johnson entered the pleas Thursday in Gage County District Court. A pretrial conference is scheduled for April 17. Court records say Johnson faces three felony counts that prosecutors say stem from incidents in Odell after his release from prison in June 2012.    

The girl told her mother and then authorities that Johnson had touched her inappropriately on more than one occasion.  The Nebraska Sex Offender Registry says Johnson, who lives in Lincoln, was convicted in May 1995 of sexually assaulting a child.
