MISSOULA, Mont. -

A man pleaded not guilty to a felony charge after a child sex sting Thursday. Neal Lewis Gray, 54, is charged with felony sexual abuse of children.

Gray is one of seven suspects arrested last month after investigators put an ad on Craigslist about a 12-year-old girl. Prosecutors say Gray responded to the ad, then showed up to meet the 12-year-old with various adult sex devices.

Gray remains in the Missoula County Detention Center on $75,000 bail. 

The six other suspects have all bonded out and are scheduled to be arraigned in Missoula County District Court the week of January 20.
