LAWTON, Iowa (AP) - A former city clerk in northwest Iowa has pleaded not guilty to a Nebraska charge filed in a child sex case.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2afcFuy ) that 61-year-old Douglas Furlich, of Lawton, entered the plea Wednesday in Dakota County District Court in Dakota City. The felony charge is child enticement by use of an electronic communications device.

The Lawton City Council in Iowa fired Furlich after his arrest.

The Nebraska State Patrol says Furlich posted an ad online saying he was “looking for a younger guy.” Officials say an undercover officer responded, pretending to be a 15-year-old boy. Court documents say Furlich went to a South Sioux City, Nebraska, park in June to meet the boy. Furlich was arrested there.
