RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - A Sturgis man pleaded not guilty to four federal charges related to the sexual exploitation of a minor.

Bobby Allan Aldinger, 52, was previously indicted on charges of attempted sexual exploitation of a minor, attempted enticement of a minor using the internet, attempted receipt of child pornography, and attempted transfer of obscene material to a minor.

Aldinger, according to a Department of Justice release, is accused of attempting to sexually exploit an undercover law enforcement agent posing as a 14-year-old girl.

A conviction on each of the above counts brings a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison.
