A Lame Deer man accused of sexually abusing a child denied federal charges Tuesday.

Anthony Phillip John Young, 27, pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging him with abusive sexual contact of a child alleged to have happened from the summer of 2011 through December 2013 at Lame Deer.

The indictment said Young knowingly engaged in sexual contact with a child by touching the child’s buttocks through clothing.

If convicted, Young faces a maximum of life in prison and a possible $250,000 fine.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Carolyn Ostby ordered Young to remain in custody pending further proceedings. U.S. Marshal Service deputies arrested Young on a warrant on Monday.

The case will be heard by U.S. District Judge Susan Watters.
