PHOENIX (AP) -- A Phoenix man accused of videotaping himself having sex with girls and women has pleaded not guilty.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 23-year-old Donald Linville entered his plea Monday. His initial pretrial conference is scheduled for May 2.

Linville was taken into custody two weeks ago on suspicion of 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of surreptitious recording.

Phoenix police say three of the women claimed they didn't know they were being videotaped and one of the alleged victims is a 15-year-old girl.

Police say numerous pornographic images also were recovered from Linville's home computer involving children under age 12.

Linville originally was arrested last Oct. 31 after being linked to a hidden video camera placed on the second-floor balcony of a woman's apartment.
