DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A former Danville youth minister pleaded not guilty to seven felony counts related to illegal sexual activities with minors.

Media outlets report 28-year-old Bobby Cassady’s attorney entered the plea Tuesday in Boyle Circuit Court.

Cassady is charged with three counts of first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor, two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, promoting a sexual performance by a minor and possession of material portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

He previously served as youth director at Gethsemane Baptist Church. He also volunteered with high school football teams and was a substitute bus driver for Danville schools.

The investigation began after a 17-year-old boy said Cassady asked him to send a sexually explicit video to him.

Commonwealth Attorney Richie Bottoms says there are multiple victims involved in the case.
