SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The owner of a Northern California-based adult website has pleaded not guilty to charges he facilitated prostitution and laundered money.

Myredbook.com owner Eric "Red" Omuro entered the plea in a San Francisco federal courtroom on Wednesday, one week after he was arrested after being indicted by a federal grand jury.

Federal agents seized the website and raided the 54-year-old Omuro's house in Mountain View on June 25. Authorities accuse the website of allowing sex performers and adult entertainers to solicit clients for their services.

Omuro's attorney, Nanci Clarence, said the government is overreaching. She plans to fight the case on First Amendment grounds.

Omuro is out on $500,000 bond. He is due back in court on July 10.
