Albion, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) Roy Harriger pleaded not guilty to six charges in Orleans County Court on Monday after being indicted last week.

The charges include three counts of course of sexual conduct against a child and three counts of incest.

The charges stem from incidents in 2000 and 2001.

Harriger is free on $250,000 bail that transferred from another sex abuse case out of the Town of Yates. The judge did rule that Harriger is to have no contact with children and cannot even be in the same room with someone under the age of 18.

In court, Harriger's attorney asked if his client could still attend church services at Community Fellowship Church in the Town of Hartland, where he is a pastor and the judge ruled that he cannot if there are children present.

The prosecution believes that Harriger is still a predator and could be a threat to children. There is no indication when a trial might start.
