Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- A top aide at the center of a scandal that brought down former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann has pleaded not guilty to felony theft in office and other charges.
Anthony Gutierrez (goo-tee-ehr-ez) entered the plea Monday in Franklin County Common Pleas Court.
The 10-count indictment also charges him with worker's compensation fraud, misusing state computers and using campaign funds to pay for rent and utilities at a Columbus condominium he shared with Dann.
Two female employees alleged that Gutierrez sexually harassed them there and at the office while he was Dann's head of general services.
A county prosecutor's spokeswoman says Gutierrez was released on bonds totaling $100,000.
Gutierrez was fired last year. Dann later resigned.
