NEWTON, Iowa (AP) - A San Diego man charged with enticing a minor while posing as an actor from the “Twilight” movie series has pleaded not guilty.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1kHCY7P ) 33-year-old David LaVera entered a written plea of not guilty Monday. A hearing was scheduled for July 2.

LaVera was arrested June 10 and charged with enticing a minor, carrying weapons and failure to have a valid driver’s license.

A criminal complaint says he told a 14-year-old girl from Baxter he was an actor from the movie series. He touched her inappropriately and took her to his vehicle.

Police also are investigating reports from another 14-year-old girl from Newton that LaVera touched her inappropriately.
