Accused Sex Offender Pleads Not Guilty

The Lubbock man accused of chatting online with children, and sending pornographic pictures, appeared in Federal Court Wednesday to hear the charges against him. You could hear the rustle of chains but no comment from Paul Burton. The 23-year-old pleaded not guilty to one count of interstate child pornography and one count of enticing a child.

You remember, a watchdog group, based out of Oregon, helped lead authorities to Burton when he sent an obscene video, over the internet, to what he thought was a 13 year old girl.If convicted on both counts, Burton faces a maximum sentence of 50 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
