CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A registered sex offender has pleaded not guilty to six counts of sexual abuse of a minor in Wyoming.

Roney McClintock, 49, of Cheyenne was charged with sexually abusing a minor between January 2011 and December 2012.

Police say a woman accused McClintock in October of sexually assaulting her daughter several times while he took care of her.

According to charging documents, McClintock has a previous conviction for second-degree sexual assault of child in Nebraska. He could face a sentence of life in prison without parole if convicted.

Laramie County court documents say since McClintock waived his right to a preliminary hearing, his case will be sent straight to district court for trial.
