A 29-year-old teacher at a Gilbert charter school pleaded not guilty to various sex charges involving a 17-year-old student in his classroom.
Andrew James Teaters entered his plea Monday morning in Maricopa County Superior Court.
Teaters was arrested June 20 at his Mesa home by Gilbert police and booked into jail on three felony counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one felony count of sexual abuse.

The victim and Teaters told police the one-time sexual relationship was consensual, according to a police report.
