RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A Box Elder man accused of sexually abusing a child while volunteering at youth organizations in Pennington County has pleaded not guilty to one of three charges against him.

Twenty-seven-year-old Trevor Lone Hill faces one count of first-degree rape and two counts of sexual contact with a child under the age of 16.

The Rapid City Journal reports he pleaded not guilty Thursday to one of the sexual contact charges, and will enter pleas to the other counts next month.

Prosecutors say Lone Hill volunteered with youth church, school and sports programs. He's accused of abusing a child between the ages of 9 and 12, between January 2014 and March 2017.
