Ex-NYC police commissioner Kerik pleads not guilty

From the Associated Press:

Former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik has pleaded not guilty to a rewritten indictment in the criminal case against him.

Kerik entered the plea Monday in U.S. District Court. The new plea was necessary because federal prosecutors recently added charges against him.

The new charges stem from allegations that he lied to his accountant about his taxes and made false statements about a loan application.

Kerik is awaiting trial on charges he accepted free apartment renovations, lied to the White House and filed false income tax returns. He also pleaded not guilty to those charges.

A hearing on pretrial motions has been set for Feb. 3.
