LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles man has been charged with child abuse for allegedly leaving his baby in the car while he went to a San Fernando Valley strip club.

Twenty-four-year-old Auwin Dargin pleaded not guilty to the charge on Monday. He could face up to six years in prison if convicted.

Authorities say Dargin left his 9-month-old daughter in the car for an hour last month during an afternoon visit to the club.

Authorities say the baby was found by employees of the club and a neighboring business.
