BOULDER — A Longmont youth pastor accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a teenage church member over several years has pleaded not guilty.

The Daily Camera reports (http://bit.ly/M2o7vp ) 35-year-old Jason Roberson appeared in Boulder District Court on Friday and denied charges of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust and invasion of privacy. He is scheduled to go to trial July 14.

The alleged victim, now 24, went to police in April and told investigators she and Roberson had an inappropriate relationship that began when she was 15 and continued for seven years.

Five VineLife Church officials have been issued summons for failing to report alleged sexual abuse of a child.
