A former District of Columbia mayoral candidate has pleaded not guilty to a charge of driving without a valid license.

Sulaimon Brown entered the plea Tuesday and requested to go to trial. He was ordered to return to court on Nov. 14.

Mr. Brown lives in the District but has a Maryland driver’s license he claims is valid. Judge Richard Ringell advised him to obtain a D.C. license before he returns to court and said he could be jailed if he’s caught driving again without a valid license.

A charge of failure to obey stemming from his September arrest was dropped.

Mr. Brown has accused aides to Mayor Vincent Gray, Democrat, of paying him and promising him a job during last year’s campaign to disparage then-Mayor Adrian Fenty. Federal authorities are investigating those claims.
