Former Auburn assistant basketball coach Chuck Person pleaded not guilty to bribery, fraud and corruption charges during an appearance in federal court in New York Tuesday.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Boone said the government has 16 hours of telephone conversations to use against Person, who is facing six charges and is accused of receiving $91,500 in bribes from a federal cooperating witness, former Pittsburgh-based financial advisor Marty Blazer.

Boone told Judge Loretta Preska the government captured conversations relevant to the case by tapping two of Person's phones.

Person declined to comment as he left the courtroom.
