Fargo Federal Court
Fargo Federal Court

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- A North Dakota man has pleaded not guilty in federal court to threatening girls if they didn't agree to engage in sexually explicit conduct for child pornography he was producing.

Dustin Coleman, of Wahpeton, appeared in court Friday morning. He is charged with eight counts in North Dakota's first prosecution of so-called ''sextortion,'' which involves using intimidation or fear to gain sexual favors.

Coleman is charged with three counts of sexual exploitation of minors, three counts of possession of materials containing child pornography and two counts of extortion.

Trial is scheduled for April 8.
