KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A 33-year-old Kalispell man who was arrested in an online sex sting operation has pleaded not guilty to sexual abuse of children.

The Flathead Beacon reports (http://bit.ly/1lYCpOu ) Daniel Anthony Hall entered his plea Thursday in District Court in Kalispell. Prosecutors say Hall responded to an online ad soliciting a man to have sex with a 12-year-old virgin. Charging documents say Hall was actually texting an undercover agent when he allegedly set up a sexual encounter with the young girl. He was arrested when he arrived at an address where he was to meet the girl.

Five other Kalispell-area men pleaded not guilty to the same charge last week. All six remain jailed Thursday with their bail set at $100,000 each. The men were arrested over a four-day period starting on Aug. 18.
