OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California Boy Scout leader has pleaded not guilty to charges that he inappropriately touched a 15-year-old boy.
The Chico Enterprise Record reports Dustin Lee Hedrick, 20, entered the plea in a Butte County courtroom on Wednesday to two misdemeanor counts of child molestation.
Hedrick is accused of inappropriately touching the boy at a Boy Scout camp in May in Butte Meadows, which is about 90 miles north of Sacramento.
He was the assistant scoutmaster for a troop out of Redding.
