A Lebanon Junction man indicted last week by a Hardin County grand jury for first-degree sexual abuse turned himself in Sunday and was arraigned Tuesday.
Michael Joseph Fievet, 22, pleaded not guilty in Hardin Circuit Court for the alleged sex crime involving a victim younger than 12. Kentucky State Police conducted the investigation.
An indictment is an allegation, not proof of guilt.
He is being held in lieu of a $25,000 cash bond at Hardin County Detention Center. His next court date is a pre-trial conference May 20.
