AURORA, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado middle school dean has pleaded not guilty after authorities accused him of bringing a handgun to school and threatening administrators in April.

The Sentinel reported Thursday that 31-year-old Tushar Rae was charged Oct. 21 with three felonies and one misdemeanor in Arapahoe County.

The Aurora West Preparatory Academy dean also pleaded not guilty to two additional felony and three misdemeanor charges filed against him Oct. 3 in connection with a Denver case accusing him of making threats against an administrator weeks earlier.

School officials say Rae remains on paid leave.
