Newman waives arraignment, pleads not guilty
Former Kanakuk Kamp director Pete Newman waived his arraignment and pleaded not guilty to sex charges today in Taney County Circuit Court.
Online court records indicate a plea arrangement could possibly be in the works. "Disposition" of the case is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 21. On another section of case.net, it says the case is scheduled for "reappearance" on Jan. 21.
Newman faces numerous felony counts involving sex with underage males.
