NORFOLK, Va. –A Navy pilot from Bedford accused of preying on girls online is facing more charges.

Daniel Harris pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Norfolk Federal Court to charges that include enticing minors to engage in sexual activity, child pornography and obstruction of justice.

WTKR reports that prosecutors accuse Harris of contacting nine girls to send him nude photos and videos.

Harris was originally accused of reaching out to four victims when he was arrested in April.

The 31-year-old said police coerced him into a confession.

Harris’ trial is set for Feb. 17.
