INDICE DE GALERIAS
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A prayer leader at the Islamic and Culture Center Bosniak in Des Moines has pleaded not guilty to sexual abuse charges.
The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/186TvMH ) that 40-year-old Nermin Spahic waived his right to an initial appearance and entered the plea Thursday.
Johnston police arrested Spahic last week after a 42-year-old woman and her 18-year-old daughter told police he had abused them during a religious ritual at their home.
Spahic later denied sexually abusing them.
He was charged with sex abuse and sexual exploitation by clergy.
