ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) -- A 73-year-old northeast Kansas man will go to trial on a charge of aggravated indecent liberties with a 9-year-old girl.

KNZA-FM reports (http://bit.ly/IA4Avv ) Norman Longbrake pleaded not guilty Monday in Atchison County District Court. The Atchison resident remains jailed on $200,000 bond.

Longbrake was arrested by Atchison police in February. He's accused of engaging in unlawful sexual conduct with the girl the previous month.

Conviction on the charge would bring a mandatory life sentence under a statute known as Jessica's Law, because the girl in this case was less than 14 years old.
