A Lead woman has pleaded not guilty to having sex with a child.
Staci Jo Graves is charged with four felony counts of first degree rape of a child under 13 years of age, and one count of solicitation of a minor.
The 42-year-old Graves was arrested in late March after a Lawrence County grand jury heard testimony from six people.
Each felony charge carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in prison.
Defense attorney Matthew Kinney says there are "important facts in dispute" but it would be in everyone's interest "that this case be resolved in due time."
A status hearing is scheduled for June 12.
